My lucky day! Stopped in at tørst and this was on the lines! 5oz pour in tørst wine glass. Crisp but murky orange yellow and a thin head of tiny bubbles and maybe a spot or two of lace. Has a nice glow to it. Nose is brisk soft sweet n sour with a hint of funk. Flavor is more of the same, kind of lime, remind me if brother sog. Finish is rather dry. Tasty but what hf brew isn't at last tasty? Not mind blowing, but worth checking out.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange. Nice white head. Some lacing. Thick collar and nice surface wisps.

Smell - Sharp citrus. Lemony tartness. Citrus hops. Grassy and herbal character. Yeasty aromas.

Taste - Yeasty and tart. Lemon zest tartness. Grassy. Almost a salty flavor in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Pleasantly tart. Medium body.

Overall - It's not a standout saison for Hill Farmstead and I definitely have no idea what Nordic means, but I enjoy it quite a bit.
