look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours golden yellow with a decent white head, continues bubbling up from bottom of glass
S- Very wheat forward, some noticeable hops, slight brett funk, smells more like Hill's farmstead ales than I imagined
T- Crisp, refreshing, slightly tart, slightly hoppy, tastes pretty saison-y. If this were bottled as Florence or Anna, I wouldn't tell much of a difference. It's very good though.
M- Light on the carbonation, smooth on the palate, lingering malt aftertaste
O- This just recently hit shelves in stores near me, and I'm okay with not having to drive all the way back to Hill Farmstead to try a Hill creation once in a while

Love mikkeller and the names he comes up with and this was a gift thanks mate you know who you are and pours a dirty yellow blonde with a frothy creamed head and clingy lacing everywhere nice looking and the smell is so inviting to me it's typical Brett mixed with tropical fruit salad,sherbet and freshly torn mandarin leaves it just smells like summer to me and almost reminiscint of the farmhouse invasion IPA,the feel is medium bodied and just a little over carbonated but the tastes of farmhouse funk,Brett,tropical fruit,mandarins,lychee and finished with a bittersweet hit of pineapple and overall it's just what you want on a hot day and another new style that's taken me cheers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light golden yellow with little head but great lacing

Smells tart lemon,citrus and hops with a bit of wheat, has a nice bit of bardyard funk as well.

t\Tastes is cirtus hops and a bit of wheat with nice bardyard sourness from the yeast tart, cut grass and lemon peel.this is verry good a nice mix of an ipa and a sour a lot going on here but verry balacned.

Slightly dry, good carbaantion

I loved this beer its is a allmost perfect mix of my two favrite styles.
