Bottle into Hill Farmstead stem.

Pours light bronze in color with orange highlights when viewed in light. Small almost non-existent head. Tiny white ring of froth left around the edge of glass. Given this is barrel aged it's not surprising and also not a big hit to the appearance as it can be expected.

Aroma is huge on the wine and grapes. Berries, pear, apple, and oak deeper in. Deep citrus much like blood orange but certainly not citrus heavy. Overall just very vinous with a raw, tangy honey like sweetness.

The flavor is really clean with more of those grape notes teetering between white grape juice and a heavy Chardonnay. Lots of cider qualities showing up with crisp pear and apple juice concentrate as the main players showing forth. Flighty orange peel and lemon come through late palate. Really exquisite yet clean. I feel as though this may have been bigger on flavor when fresh.

Mouthfeel is light, low carbonation, again leaning towards cider like or next day sparkling wine pour realm of things. Though it's pleasant, I am missing some more bubbles.

Overall a very tasty brew and it exudes sophistication while refraining from blowing my mind. I could drink a lot if this beer and would not tire. And it's a beautiful representation of the profound possibilities on what beer can be. Such versatility and Hill Farmstead feeds on that. Great to have had this.

Pour is transparent golden amber with a white head. Nose is bright, juicy, apple skin and some malt. Taste is dry, soft carbonation and a light body. Apple skin, pear, some malt complexity with a moderate tartness but a fair bit of sweetness.
Check with the guys, struggled to come up with descriptions.
