Notes/Commercial Description:
Florence (1915-1967) was our grandfather’s sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Belgian inspired Wheat ale is crafted from American malted barley, Organic Vermont wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Soft, cloudy, and fresh, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Florence.

Pale Malt; Vermont Organic Wheat; American and European Hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Appearance: Light straw yellow color. Small white head that leaves a slight lacing. Slightly hazy but some brightness and clarity. 3.75/5

Smell: fairly light and delicate whiffs of lemon and other citrus, a wheat malt base along with some belgian yeast character. a fairly strong vinegar along with some green apple skin. 3.5/5

Taste: Opens up with a slight wheaty tartness. rustic belgian yeast that plays in with the wheat to make notes of hay and some spices. lots of lemon and hints of lemon bread sweetness. backend is full of acid and vinegar. 3.25/5

Mouthfeel: extremely light and whispy. Tart and acid. 3.5/5

Overall: I really like the use of some tartness in saisons, but the lightness of the body and the overly vinegary notes take away a bit too much for me on this one.
