This is a God awful beer. I brought this to a tasting thinking that with Hill Farmstead's name on it that I was going to be the hero of the day. It turned up to be one of the worst beers we have ever collectively had at a tasting. Beat out only by Wing Walker; which has a BA rating of 70. The common joke while drinking this beer was a reference to MADGE (most of you will too young to remember Madge) who did a TV ad for Palmolive Detergent. Remember "You're soaking in it." Vermontoise tasted like lemon PLEDGE. Had soap bubbles like dish washing fluid, smelled like dish washing fluid. Someone should find all the bottles of Vermontoise there is out there; dump em and rinse the bottles out with dish washing fluid. OH wait they could just use Vermontoise.

Been wanting to try this beer since learning of it almost a year ago, glad to have recently had the opportunity. 750ml poured into a tulip. The brew appears a hazed pale yellow color with a billowing white cap 4 fingers strong that fades leaving soapy patchy lace.

The smell is excessively full of sulfur. As it breaths, some hay, earth and grass emit. Some dry wheat aspect and faint peppery spice. There is a mild fruitiness coming out when warm.

Taste is dry and herbal with a modest grassy bitterness. Earthen with straw-like grain character and yeasty pepper notes. Like the aroma, it is difficult to ignore how sulfuric this brew is to the point of almost feeling skunky.

This is light bodied and effervescent with carbonation. Lively to say the least. Perhaps a bit too distracting with a dominating amount of sulfur and herbal bitterness that seems out of place. I wanted to like this but ended up being disappointed. The label had a best by date of 2018. I can only assume thats a generic 5-years out putting my bottle at a year old. I dont see this beer getting any better by holding on to it and have no idea if fresher would have been better. What I do know is that I wont be spending anymore money on this offering.
