Serious gusher alert!
Appearance: Pours a murky dull orange with a massive 3 finger white crown composed of tight and fine carbonation bubbles. Moderate retention and lots of lace.
Smell: Definitely my favorite aspect of this brew. Mango, apricot, peach, lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, and belgian esters.
Taste: Has most of the same notes the nose possesses, but they blend to the point where they are harder to pick out individually. The overly carbonated mouthfeel also makes picking them out more difficult.
Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium bodied with ample carbonation. The carbonation is so velvety smooth but its simply over carbonated to the point where it takes away from both the flavor and the mouthfeel.
Overall: I really really like this beer and think its one that Hill Farmstead could really dial in and improve upon in the future.

Huge thanks to Tom10101 for picking up and sending out this huge want.
A: Copper yellow haze topped with 3 fingers of white foam and settles down to a single layer across the glass. Streams of carbonation race to the top, suggesting a snappy carbonation.
S: Lemony dank basement with muskiness, yeasts and wheatiness topped with some minerals. Finish is a little acid and as it warms some notes of under ripe banana.
T: Lemony acidity with sourness of grape skins and brett funk. Wheaty notes with medical herbal notes and chalky minerals.
M: Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation combined with light crisp tartness.
O: A refreshing and tangy drink grounded with funkiness and wheat. Light and refreshing it holds nothing back in the tart and sour department and never plays down to a crowd looking for something sweet. Bold and assertive.
