Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip. Batch 1, bottled November 2013.
Pours a stunning pale, hazy pink with a rapidly-disappearing fizzy bone-white head. Lacing is limited to sporadic splotches.
In the nose, some leathery Brett funk meets plentiful pink grapefruit and a light, sweet floral note--I assume that must be the hibiscus. Bready pale malt and lime zest rounds out the nose. All plenty nice on their own, but I'm not convinced they play nicely together.
In the mouth, strong lime zest and fresh-cut grass up front, along with a big hit of funky Brett. Grapefruit and pale malt mid-palate, finishes with floral notes as well as subtle oak and white grape. Fairly tart throughout.
Mouthfeel is dry and spritzy, on the light end of medium-bodied, with a clean and crisp finish.
On the whole, this was my first Hill Farmstead-ish beer, and I was impressed and pleased without being blown away. Very pleasant and drinkable, certainly excellent for a summer evening.

Great pink lemonade color. Nice hazy pink grapefruit. Nice bubbly white head and thin collar. Aroma is a sweet floral hibiscus, slight tart citrus and slight dry/tart yeast funk. Taste is that floral-funk combo at the front, some Brett/lime tart in the middle, then fades back to the hibiscus. Nice light body and medium-light carbonation.

750ml bottle, split
Sporting a similar billing as the dazzling Brother Soigne, I snagged a few of these immediately from bottleworks. This is the 2nd anchorage/hill farmstead collaboration that I'm familiar with - surprisingly pink body, light bubbly carbonation. It's still relatively mild with the brett really pretty soft - i think a few years will transform this beer pretty dramatically. The lime and hibiscus play nicely - here's hoping these two breweries keep collaborating as they're definitely two favorites on my shortlist.
