Part of me feels like this beer is so far beyond my comprehension that I don't even know what to enjoy. It's a tad sour for me. Which is personal preference. Tartness is very pronounced. It's a blend of farmhouse ales aged in assortment barrels. Almost as if Shaun Hill may have over killed here. One sip seems complex. The next seems muddled. Taste like lambic and white wine. I can not seem to pull much oak out of it. Acidic Lemon, Citrus and Grass are the lead notes. Too much acid, sour and tartness for me to rate this amongst the other Hill Farmstead brews I had. Seems to be a miss by their standards. Again, I'm not being sarcastic when I say, this beer might literally be beyond my comprehension of complexity~

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

Appearance: pours a pale yellow to dull orange. Small white head that leaves a slight lacing along the side of the beer. slightly cloudy and almost opaque

Smell: white wine. Earthy sour vinegar. Wheat grass.

Taste: opens with lemon and strong vinegar. White wine comes in of the back of the sourness. the end is comprised of an earthy farmhouse yeast

Mouthfeel: the sourness on this one is fairly strong, along with an acidic dryness. leaves a barnyard coating.

Overall: not overly impressed with this one. very vinegary and vinous. I wish I could have picked up on some oaky flavors or something to increase the complexity a bit
