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.

Awesome balance of lemon/lime, funk, yeast, and wheat. Great beer! As far as their standard saisons are concerned, this jmay be my favorite...just hit me in all the right ways.

- 2014 vintage
- Off tap @ Beachwood (LBC) on 7-Nov-14
- 10 oz. pour into a wheat beer glass

Tasted against Arthur, Anna, and Brother Soigne. Of the four, I ranked this one 4th.

Quite tart and more funky than the rest. Get a strong lemon presence. Just not as complex and interesting as the others. Still a fantastic saison.
