A: Beautiful, hazy, slightly olive-yellow-orange...if that makes sense. Massive, bright white head that's super fizzy and foamy. This screams farmhouse.

S: Very delicate yet crisp, citrusy nose. Plenty of yeast and funk. Smells like a humid, warm day.

T: Wow. Just wow. Such perfectly balanced farmhouse flavors. The tart fruit and yeasty goodness complement each other so well. Never cloying or boring. I just can't get enough of this.

M: Amazing body and absolutely perfect carbonation. The flavors explode but don't overwhelm leaving behind a tasty film of farmhouse goodness on the palate. Insane.

O: Really let this baby warm up to showcase the strengths because this beer doesn't have too many weaknesses. If any. Incredibly delicious stuff.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a bright orange/peach color with a foamy white head on top about two fingers in height. Great head retention and lacing.

S: Fantastic citrus aroma, lots of lime upfront with lemon as well. Very bright, really inviting. A bit of light funk on the back end.

T: Very juicy and refreshing. More citrus, mainly as lime with a bit of lemon peel mixed in. A little bit of stone fruit as well, some apricot/peach.

M: Light to medium bodied, very easy drinking with a great level of carbonation.

O: A fantastic beer, I was a big fan of the citrus in this beer, would love for HF to make this frequently..or at least again.
