Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: skivtjerry on 08-18-2010

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.

A: Pours a slightly hazed, pale straw yellow color. A two finger white head forms with good retention and lace.
S: A basement like musty aroma up front. Earthy and peppery yeast. A light mineral character, lemon rind and citrus fruits. I really love the yeast character here.
T: Like the nose, musty, earthy, and peppery yeast. A more up front tartness than I was expecting, which is just fine. Lemon rind and citrus flavors, even a bit of white grapes. The yeast, and simple tart fruit flavors intermingle perfectly.
M/D: A light body that is effervescent. Beautiful crisp carbonation that is smooth at the same time, dry and refreshing. Really easy and enjoyable to drink. Wish I could get some more.

Reminds me a bit of Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam. Like that beer, fairly simple, but everything is really well integrated, and the rustic yeast just shines. Really well done.
