Thanks to MEW for this one!
Poured into new belgian globe from 350 bottle, be careful, mine was a gusher.

a- poured a beautiful hazy golden peach, about a half inch of clean white head. I haven't seen a beer quite this color before. Nice lacing as well.

s- lots of citrus on the nose, lots of brett tartness but without the plastic or band aid smells some people associate with brett. Some hops come through as well, but the brett makes my mouth water, so on with the show...

t- first sip, holy cow, reminds me of biting into a fresh grapefruit. Lots of bright citrus tartness with the hops balancing things out well. I can't decide if I should sip and savor this or chug this right now! Amazing flavors, I can't get enough.

m- silky smooth mouthfeel, the head adds a velvet like feel to the tart flavors. Exactly what I expected.

o- this has been the best brett saison I have had. Ever. Top five beers of all time for me thus far.

Bottle poured into my snifter.

A: Pours a hazy, golden color with a small white head.
S: Smells funky! Lots of pineapple and wine barrel notes as well.
T: Wow, this tastes amazing. Reminds me of Mimosa but with tropical flavors instead of citrus. Lots of grapefruit, pineapple flavors followed by nice tartness.
M: Carbonation is spot on. Very nice. It feels juicy, with nice refreshing tartness. Clean finish.
O: I can't decide which is my number one but this just earned a top spot in my HF list, up there with Mimosa and Damon. Reminds me a lot of Mimosa, which is definitely a good thing.

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, mkabull!

This one does gush upon opening! Be warned!

Burnt apricot or peach flesh in color with a quickly forming, creamy off-white head of very small bubbles. Nice retention and this leaves messy lacing. Very pretty saison.

Definite citrus in the aroma, along with a concentrated, rotting fruit character (in a good way!), a mild to moderate funk character, and a bit of a champagne or white wine character that's tough to describe but definitely adds to the overall enjoyment and complexity of the aroma.

The flavor follows suit, though the flavor is more balanced than the aroma, as the (rotting, strong) citrus character is tamed down nicely by the complex, earthy funk, and champagne/white wine flavors. Some brick flavor as well, which adds nicely. This is delightful.

Medium bodied with high carbonation.

A lovely, enjoyable saison from Hill Farmstead. Shocking!

A - Hazy golden with light brown accents to it. Small white head

S - Grapes, light citrus from the mimosa, light oak, blue cheese funk as well for this.

T - You get a lot of Mimosa up front with the citrus coming through. There is also a lot of funk that leaves a strong blue chesse funk. The finish is tart and has some of the oak and funk that linger on

M - Thick body with a light creaminess to it. Finish is slightly dry

O - Call this a poor man's Mimosa. It is a really good sour that gets a ton of flavors from the Mimosa barrels which gives it a lot citrus to go with its tartness and blue cheese funk

Thanks to Josh for this one. Shared at a tasting 12/8. 5oz pour into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a light, thin white ring of carbonation. Beer is clear bronze. Spotty lace with decent stick. Not great for the style.

Nose is passion fruit, citrus, pineapple, and other tropical fruit with cane sugar sweetness. Really good!

Opens yeasty. Citrus, passion fruit, light tartness balanced by a mild, yeast and hop bitterness. Big tropical fruit notes throughout make this one almost IIPA like but with a saison-y spicy finish. Interesting.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Spritzy in the mouth and crisp and quenching going down. Dry finish with a dry aftertaste. Very good.

Pretty good overall and just like mimosa, very aptly named. However, also like mimosa, I wouldn't rank this among the best saison's HF makes. Flavor profile is interesting but this just doesn't stand out to me. I'm glad I got to try it but I wouldn't go through the trouble of seeking this out myself.

375ml bottle, served in hill farmstead stemware, thanks @blackie

Don't delay - she's a little of a slow and steady gusher. A hazed peach body and a thick creamy white head with sticky retention. Aromas of musty yeast, melon, and distant citrus. The flavor profile improves off the nose - featuring melon, grapefruit, yeast, white pepper, orange, brett. The wine barrel is light - really not much wood but a bit of a tannic finish. Expectations are naturally sky high for Hill Farmstead, so this was a little underwhelming but still a really nice saison.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy orange. A little hazy and murky looking. Nice white head. Gushed a little.

Smell - Citrusy. White wine. Bright and acidic. Hoppy orange with some lemony aromas.

Taste - Very bright orange citrus. Acidic white wine. Grainy malts. White wine lingers past the citrus flavors, but the hops come through to provide some bitterness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Crisp. Dare I say refreshing. Well carbonated.

Overall - Extremely impressive. This review is from the first time I had this beer, which was pretty fresh. I was surprised to find this review after years. It does lose its punch and unique hop flavors after a while, but it remains a good beer.

Big thanks goes out to 67couple for sharing this one at a past Random Sunday Tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller flute. Poured a dark hazy yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, orange, fruit, sour, funk, earth, and wood. The flavor was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, fruit hop, wood, funk, earth, subtle sour, and orange zest. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was pretty good brew. I had heard lots of really good things about this one as it has quite a bit of hype going along with it. I am usually fairly skeptical when it comes to hyped beers, so this one wasn’t any different. Granted what I found was actually quite good and had a fairly good balance to it. This kept my palate refreshed and interested throughout the glass. I really wish that this one came in a larger format bottle so a larger pour could be enjoyed, but that is the nature of the beast I suppose. Definitely worth your time trying at least once if you get the chance, but I wouldn’t trade my soul to do so in my honest opinion.

Big big big thank you to Franklinn for sending me this treat. Cheers man!!

Appearance. Pours a rich, hazy, peachy orange with a finger of off white head that leaves some clouds and pretty lace behind on the sides of the glass.

Smell. Just awesome. Mangoes and papaya, sweet citrus flesh and melon, a bit of peaches and pineapple with a sweet and lightly peppery saison yeast and woody white wine. Oh man...

Taste. Fresh squeezed yellow grapefruit juice, dry woody white wine, orange zest and grassy hops, and some tropical fruits with a slight trace of savory herbs. There's some bitterness in the form of grass and yellow grapefruit rinds in the fairly dry finish. Something reminiscent of brett as well, in a lighter, more earthy way.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, below medium fine and fairly smooth carbonation.

Overall. These guys really know their shit. Just an amazing brew with a very fitting name. Here's hoping that many many brewers try to follow suit with the type of saisons being put out by this place. I would buy this by the case on a weekly basis if I could ...which makes me ask why the hell can't I??? Thanks again Franklinn, awesome of you to hook me up!

Poured from the bottle into a Hill Farmstead stemware glass. Gushes a bit on opening

Milky white top, classic HF milky and tight bubbles make the pour and cap. Always leaves a nice 2-3mm puck. Body color is a dull peach orange, and opaque quite hazy.

Bouquet hits hot and sharp. Big brett funk, mixing with large aromatic peaches and fruit. Mellows out with a nice to aptly described heat and tropical juicy fruit action. Lots of pineapple, and yellow tropic sensations. More of a punch tropic than an actual beer, just that hint of classic big funk brings you back. Smells amazing. A few drops spill on my hands, and my fingers smell like liquid bread, just incredible.

What an impressive palate. Fruit punch action, and tropical pineapple abounds. Huge juice finish with large peppery sensing spice. Bread and toasty sourdough explode in the aftertaste all over. A good controlled burst of heat, but nothing boozy. Incredibly.. truly.. juicy palate, mouth coating and full, but light and not thick. Lemon, pineapples, peaches oh my.. throw in some farmhouse big bold goodness and it's mouthwatering.

I am not one for tropical notes, I am even less one of a fan for pineapple flavors, but this is just unreal. Borderline blurring drink. Great saison, great Hill Farmstead stuff. Stupidly drinkable... MORE!

Reviewing the infamous Juicy from Hill Farmstead Brewery out of Greensboro Bend, Vermont. This dry hopped saison is aged in the barrels that were used to age Mimosa.

Score: 95

November 2012 vintage bottle served in a Darkness chalice and enjoyed on 03/19/14. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Pours a nice murky orange color with a finger of off-white head that settles to a thick ring around the glass and splotchy, wispy coating. Amazing lacing and retention; crazy cling. 4.75/5

Smell: Apricot, grapefruit, grapes, a touch of barnyard funk and sweet malt. Really nice tropical juiciness, wine character and young-ish saison aroma mix. Warms up to a little bit of lacto and PDO comes out of the woodwork into the mix. 4.5/5

Taste: Bready malt and white wine, following by grapefruit/stone fruit and a little tannic acidity. Straw-like flavor and tropical juiciness in the finish, lingering with just a kiss of funk. Really nice flavors here, blending gracefully. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Light-plus bodied, good carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel with a dry finish. Nice earthiness with a good light tartness. 4.5/5

Overall: Many have said this beer aged is a shell of its former fresh self, but I found it to be delicious aged nearly a year and a half regardless of how much better it may or may not have been fresh. Relative to Dry Hopped L'Brett D'Or, as aged, my palate prefers Juicy. With ample tropical juiciness, a nice wine character and a dry finish, this beer offers lots of complexity. Drink 'em now fellas.

Cost: $8 for a 375 ml bottle.

Pours light brown with a big frothy off white head. Great retention and good spotty lacing down the glass.

Lots of funk in the nose. Some citrus fruits combine with brett to form the aroma backbone. Can't really smell any wine barrel.

Very fruity and funky taste as well. I get some white wine components that were absent in the aroma. Good grape and orange notes along with brett and a few spices. Very smooth throughout as no one component overpowers. Not very sour at all, just funky.

Medium to light bodied with medium carbonation. A little bit slick and oily and goes down smooth.

Very well made beer, but not worth giving up an arm and a leg so thanks to chippo for the great trade. For Hill Farmstead frame of reference, I enjoyed this more than Mimosa, but still not anywhere as good as b3 Flora.

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.

It slowly gurgles out of the bottle after opening, needs to settle for a second before we open it. It's alive!

Pours a dark peach color, with a one inch head, and small little dots of lacing.

Just an incredible fresh fruit touch in the aroma- melon, orange, pineapple, lemon, some white wine.

The taste is similar, but the funk has clearly taken over the proceedings at this age. Fruity, slightly chalky Brett flavors abound, some barnyard funk, light acidity, melon, orange, pineapple, lemon, white wine acidity. A little bit of hop presence is tasted near the end, of the zesty, citrusy variety. Lingering acidity.

Medium bodied, juicy but crisp mouthfeel. For all the flavors, this is quite drinkable.

One of the most interesting and well-crafted beers I've ever had. Shaun Hill is a genius.

Out of my Ommegang glass.

A- A beautiful warm orangey amber color. Pours with a nice foamy white head and plenty of lacing. Pretty crisp and clean.

S- A strong smell of funky bret, tangerine, and peachy fruity smells. Wow!

T- the initial flavor is very funky and bretty , it quickly transitions to more of a peppery saison flavor. The aftertaste is nice fruity hops with touches of orange and lemon rind. Definitely a baby mimosa of sorts.

M- as always from Hill Farmstead it is spot on.

O- the diversity in flavor is just incredible. If you love funky bretty beers, this should be a must have. The citrus and hops just compliment each other extremely well.

Consumed 5/21/14 with my buddy an hour before his wedding. Thanks again jstillwell!

A: Hazy dark copper body topped with a creamy one finger head that persists for a long time. As per usual from HF, the beer is absolutely glowing.

S: Dear God... Can literally smell this across the room. Tons of fruit upfront including mango, pineapple, and zesty orange. Tart white wine and bretty funk take up the back end of the aroma. One of the best aromas I've ever encountered from a beer.

T: Tart citrus followed by acidic white wine grapes. Brett has clearly taken over at this stage, and gives off notes of musty tropical fruit. Grainy malt rounds everything out. Not as mind blowing as the nose, but extremely balanced.

M: Medium bodied and airy mouthfeel. Typical superb HF mouthfeel. What does Shaun Hill do to his water?!

O: An amazing beer that I only wish I could have tried fresh when the hops were still a factor. Hopefully I can now that's it's been rebrewed. An extremely appropriate beer to be sharing with friends before such an important event.

Huge, huge thanks to Evan for this one. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.

Slow gusher as I pop the cap. Nothing big, but have a glass at the ready. Pour yields a deep peach-colored brew with a nice two-finger white head. Good retention and plenty of lacing as it goes down. Thin cap throughout.

The initial nose provides a good dose of honeydew alongside tropical fruit. Mild funk and white-wine character in the background. Touch of citrus rind and very light straw.

Flavor is incredible. Absolutely fantastic. Notes of melon and white wine overlay a very light acidity. Just a touch of oak in the background as well as some mild underlying Brett.

Body is light with a mild underlying bitterness. Acidity is quite light and is more along the lines of a mild citrus character rather than straight lactic acid. There's a touch of creaminess in the background. Perhaps not creamy, but just a bit of wheat character.

Overall, on the level with the best Hill Farmstead beers. Phenomenal, to say the least. Can we officially name Hill Farmstead the best brewery in the world?

Bottle from Hill Farmstead.

Poured into a HF white-logo fest glass (rarwale). Cloudy orange-amber color, with a small, puffy, white head that retained well and laced the glass nicely. Delectable aroma, oaky, white wine, grassy, light citrus and mild funk. Lots of citrusy tang in the taste, assertive but delicate hop bitterness, white grapes and a nicely defined barrel character, with a slight sour twinge, crisp tropical fruit notes, mild grassy funk, pulpy and juicy (harhar) orange and lemon lingering into the aftertaste. Very light and toasty malts. Medium body, clean and crisp mouthfeel. Complexity through the roof. I would have called this "juicy" even if it wasn't the actual name of the beer. I may never have this beer again, but I definitely want to...

Served in a Sweetwater mini-snifter.

Memories of The PJs doesn't help my initial perception of this bottle... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy amber-gold topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises grapefruit peel, light mango, light leek, light-ish fruity Brett, light banana peel, and a twinge of buttery caramel. The taste holds notes of tart grapefruit zest, sour white grapes (a white wine varietal I can't pin down), light earthy greens, mandarin orange, and lemon zest. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, lightly sticky finish. Overall, a very nice beer, one that sees a keen marriage of base, extra hops, and barrel. Good times.

Juicy pours a hazy yellow/amber with a small, thin white head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving only a few spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is loaded with tangerine citrus. In addition, notes of brett and tropical fruit are also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft, a little watery with mild carbonation. The flavor is tart with orange and tangerine citrus. Some grapes appear in the middle along with a touch of tropical fruit. It finishes a little salty (? maybe it's just me). Once gone the tart flavor and tangerine citrus lingers on the palate.

This is an easy drinking beer with lots of aroma and flavor. An interesting combination of tartness and citrus hops.

This is simply a beautiful beer, top to bottom. It is easily one of my top beers, if not my top beer.

It was a gusher, so be prepared with a glass. The half ounce of beer spilled on the bar was truly tragic.

This beer is listed as "0 ICUs", which means there is no "citrus zest" added to the beer. That's surprising, as the first thing you notice in the aroma is citrus fruit everywhere. The taste follows, with a barrage of oranges, apricots, and peaches. It continues and builds along with a lurking bitterness from the New Zealand hops. Towards the back end, an explosion of multi-layered Brettanomyces sensation starts, reminiscent of Orval. It finishes with a combination of that Orval-esque Brett flavor and orange citrus. It's aged in Mimosa barrels, which had 500 ICUs if I remember correctly, so the fruit flavors that I was lucky enough to taste in Mimosa are certainly present in Shaun Hill's "mini-Mimosa" here in Juicy.

Don't take any of this to mean that the beer is one-note citrus. It's not. Between the sufficient amount of hops to keep a lurking bitterness, the intricate flavoring of Brettanomyces in the back end, and the citrus flavor, it combines to make a truly world-class and wonderful beer. Everyone was absolutely blown away by this beer. It'd be on my short "desert island" list for sure.

375ml Bottle split between some great BA friends. Been waiting to open this one for a while.

A: Lighter than expected - a tinge of cloudy orange. A gusher but was to be expected from a HF wild ale.

S: Amazing, I think only Flora has a better nose. Wine and fruit and hops. Lemon/tangerine/dry white wine. Can smell a bit of funk seeping through the citrus. Some nice hop aroma at the end.

T: Brett on the tongue. Citrus and a moderate bitterness through the middle. Wine-soaked tangerines and a slight hint of grapefruit through the finish. Complex and delicious. Hard not to gulp the entire bottle down.

M: Moderate. Not as thin as the color suggested. Nicely carbed (could have been the year in the bottle that did it)

O: Cliche to say - I didn't think this could live up to the hype - but it did. The tasting group was blown away by this one, and I can't wait to snag another now that it's been rebrewed.

If you have the ammo, definitely trade for this one. My 2nd favorite HF beer of all time, behind the mighty Flora.

This is my first beer review, and to be honest, it is only because it is necessary. I have never felt the need to give my input on a beer except while bartending or during a bottle share, until now.

The smell is a deep brett funk with a small hint of tartness.
The initial taste is huge brett, slightly bitter.
It finishes like taking a huge bite out of a Florida orange on a hot summer day at the beach with the best of friends.
Both bottles i have had were not gushers, and although this was not thr best beer i have ever tasted, it was the most interesting and pleasant one by far.

Enjoy, and happy hunting.

Bottle was a slight gusher, nothing bad

A - Pours an apricot orange with a slight off-white head

S - A balance of white wine, citrus and grass. The wine faded more into the citrus side as it warmed ,very enjoyable

T - So much going on between the wine characteristics transitioning into the citrus with a funk added in. All of the flavors play off each other very well. What I want from a more "rustic" HF offering. I think the dried grass portion adds a lot to the finish

M - Smooth with a fair amount of carbonation

O - The layers are amazing and keep going. I was pleased how the beer changed over the 30 minutes of drinking with different profiles emerging. I would have liked more citrus but this is being picky. This was my first HF barrel offering and can't wait to try many more.

Bottle thanks to ILOVESTOUTS, poured into a Hill Farmstead glass.

Pour: Deep, hazy blood orange. Body is nearly radient with color. A really nice two finger, off white head forms. The head hangs around for a little while, eventually leaving lots of sticky lacing, and a film.

Smell: Funk to start which is then overpowered by a wealth of juicy grapefruits and mangos. Some lemon zest. A deep must throughout the nose. Some white wine and oak at the end.

Taste: Up front is a HUGE burst of grapefruit, passion fruit, grape must, and mangos. A really clean funk accompanies along with a refreshing tartness. The wine barrel presence is quite evident throughout, and provides a distinct oakeyness. A slight bitterness comes out at the end in the form of citrus juice, along with a slightly bready sweetness. The finish is dry with oak.

Mouthfeel: Well, the feel is... juicy. Clean tartness that is not puckering, but very refreshing. Medium bodied. The dry finish is incredibly refreshing. This beer is a sipper, simply because there is SO much going on in taste.

Overall: This is the new best beer I've ever had. I'm not sure this even needs age, because I don't see how it can improve. Perfection.

Poured from a bottle into a HF stem

Cloudy, hazy, gold with a huge fluffy head. Others have reported a gusher, this bottle did no such thing. phew.

There is a nice mustiness to it. There is also a fruitiness I just can't quite place. There is some funky scent in there, a band aid plastic...it all works well together, I'm not a professional at this so my descriptors may be off, but trust me...it works.

There is a lot going on here. Hops start out and a milky, tart finish follows. Again, it's hard for me to describe, but it works.

Rather creamy and well..Juicy. It's kind of like a saison on hop steroids. Feels oh so smooth in the mouth with just a touch of dryness as I swallow.

Really a fantastic beer stretching the boundaries of saison and wild ale. Really an awesome beer. I think I may have enjoyed CD 5 a touch more...but, Shaun is fucking killing it!
