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.

In my opinion, this is simply one of the best beers brewed by Hill Farmstead. Many seek big, bold offerings, while this is subtle, elegant, refreshing, delicate and simply outstandingly good. The overall balance of this beer keeps blowing me away, and I just seem to enjoy it more and more, every bottle being a real treat. The nose is quite subtle with bananas, citrus, apples, and what feels like jasmine flowers. Mouthfeel reminds me of great riesling, and the acidity brings a lovely freshness. I would trade all boozy, sweet stouts for an ounce of this beer.
