I don't think you can compare Sartori to Hildegard. They are trying to do totally different things.
Having said that, i LOVE Hilde.
Sartori was at first unimpressive to me, but after a few tries i kinda love the subtlety of it. Pretty rare in our hop-heavy days!
They aren't the same thing, but Hilde was hitting the spot a lot more.
That said, what RATCHET was saying is totally accurate last year and again this year, too. I had another Sartori last night and it's noticeably improved since a week ago. I have two more and will be waiting 1 and 2 more weeks respectively. I got a lot more citrus and body yesterday than I had on the first bottle, which was a little vegetal.
