look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy pale yellow with a soft, bubbly, pearl white head.

Spicy black pepper nose with banana bread.

Taste is similar, but closer to gingerbread, with pear apple and bubblegum.

Spicy, thin, but frothy. This is an odd one for the associated pedigree.

wheat, grains, lemon, lime, fresh cut grass, citrus zest, white wine notes, bubblegum, yeast, earthieness, bit of funk - all blending together and coming through so clean on this. almost a champagne like mouthfeel leaves a crisp dryness and light prickle on the tongue. super easy drinking and very very refreshing summer brew.

A - Golden yellow body, clear with just a touch of haze, strong carbonation forming streams of bubbles throughout, and an absolutely massive white head, rocky and sticky.

S - Floral notes mingle with a mild funk, a hint of herbal and grassy notes finish. Lemon curd. Zest. Yum.

T - More straight-forward than the nose, but completely dialed in, with a wonderful tart front of lemon and floral elements, a middle of grains and minerality, and a close that turns mildly bitter, spicy and spiky, clearing the tongue for another welcome drink.

M - Bright and brisk, with a hint of dustiness in the close.

O - This is a very well crafted saison, traditional, with lots of corners to explore. Tasty.

A 750ml bottle with a best before end year of 2018 and poured into a Cantillon Iris ballon glass.

Appearance: It poured a very nice clear golden colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Farmhouse mustiness, straw, hay, red apple, honey, lemon zest and a hint of banana esters.

Taste: Cereal grains, honey, herbal, grassy, zesty lemon with a hint of peach and peppery spice.

Mouthfeel: Dry, light bodied with high lively prickly carbonation.

Overall: A solid saison from Blaugies and Hill Farmstead.
