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.
