Purchased at Hill Farmstead in 6/2014

A- Body is a translucent raspberry hue that pours with a light maroon 2-3 finger very foamy, fizzy head. The head quickly and disappointingly fades almost completely to a thin collar. When held up to the light bubbles can be seen steadily rising to the top.

S- tart blueberry, sweet blueberry, acidic sourness. The blueberry is very authentic but I'm not getting any of the wine barrel or original characteristics described in flora or florence.

T-Flavor is a little milder than the nose. Tart blueberries upfront with very mild white wine overtones, and a background of faint oak barrel, a very faint hint of beady yeast and funk. The finish has some mild acidic tartness to add...but it consistent with the initial flavors. The complexity really comes through as the beer warms. There is just the slightest hint of funk to it.

M- Very low carbonation, relatively flat. Body is medium weight and has a slightly acidic consistency and a slightly watery consistency.

O- Overall this is a very well done, complex beer. I have not had Florence but I am having trouble finding the base beer after the wine barrel aging and addition of blueberries. I really like this beer but before my rating the rating that this beer has is just about equal to a very famous belgian blueberry lambic. Although this is a nice complex beer- it is not really the cream of the crop.

I've never had ann or mimosa, but this might be Mr. Hill's best beer. I don't want to like it as much as I do. I can also see this aging quite well. Brought comparisons to LP Kriek (which we had about 45 minutes prior). Hate on the man who brewed it all you want, this beer is the real deal.
