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.

Florence pours a hazy golden yellow with a small creamy head. Minimal amounts of lace on the glass as the foam fades away.

The aroma has strong tart notes of lemon citrus, plus some wheat, and Belgian spices (coriander).

Each sip of this medium bodied beer has a soft body and light carbonation. The flavor has nice lemon citrus, wheat, light spice (coriander) and bubblegum. It finishes dry and tart with mild bitterness. Once gone the lemon tartness and spice lingers on the palate.

A very tasty beer with a light body and nice balance between sweet malt and tartness.

Serving type: bottle
