Before we go into this one, I gave this beer a perfect 5. I’ve done that with one other beer. This is the beer I wish were available at Walgreens for $3.99 a bottle. It’s the beer I’d drink daily if it were canned and I had a fridge full of it. It’s the beer I’d take fishing and camping and to Christmas parties.
It’s the best Saison I’ve ever tried.

Picked this up at the bottle release a few months back. Stored at 60 Degrees then placed it in the fridge an hour before serving. Enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead glass with friends.
A – Bright golden orange with lots of haze. 4-finger solid white head with tight bubbles
S – It’s really nice on the nose. Very floral and grassy. Mild level of lemon zest and oakiness.
T – Taste is up front very citrusy and a mild level of peppery spice. Hints of lemons and cloves. Finish is tart and somewhat funky.
M – 60% carbonation on the mouth swish. Light body. Tart finish.
O – Art is easily twice as good as Arthur but I gave Arthur a big rating I certainly can’t double the rating so I’m just gonna give it the best I can.
