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.

Such a special beer. Very crisp, light and showcases the wheat perfectly. Big punch of tartness in the finish making you want another sip.

Big thanks to DHack22 for hooking me up with this beauty. It has a great clean orange to yellow hue with great lacing and a great crisp aroma with a touch of funk from the Brett. The taste was more tart than I even expected, with a nice amount of lemon, pepper, wheat, honey, and maybe a touch of some other spice like oregano. Feel is very bubbly, almost champagne like which makes a lot of sense with the flavors present. Dry feel in the aftertaste. Yet another well made beer from HF!
