Hugs feel great. But when you find yourself behind the wheel of a 4,000lb truck rumbling over the gravel, hugging each person you pass just isn't in the cards. So you raise your finger off the wheel just enough to acknowledge your neighbor. The Farm Wave is a completely legitmate and wholly appreciated acknowledgement. It really is the least you can do to recognize that fleeting moment you share with another person. It is simple, but meaningful.

Farmer Wave exists as its own sort of acknowledgement. The brewing brought together friends separated by the evolution of life. The process was a reason to reunite and the product is a gesture from one friend to another. There are simple ways we can share our worlds with each other.
Farmer Wave is one of those ways.

L- Tons of head in the beginning but settles down nicely and has a beautiful hazy orange glow.

S- Has the signature HF funk with accents of citrus. Citrus smells natural, not at all artificial.

T- Great level of funk and citrus here. Funky, tart, yeasty, salty, supremely balanced.

F- Nice drinkability if a touch over carbonated.

O- This was a really pleasant surprise. Fantastic beer.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a HFP large goblet.
L - A bit of haze, gentle carbonation streams upward, fulfilling its purpose with a short life of a cap. Deep yellow, orange color sets a beautiful tone. The rings of lacing leaves evidence.
S - Distinct, sweet malt, lime, orange, white melon and a bit of sour notes, minerals, and a bit of funkiness, and salt water toffee. With a rise in temperature a botanical quality sneaks in, Hibiscus, Lavender.
T - Dragon fruit, ripe musk melon, lime, orange jam, English dry biscuit. The flavors roll through, the pop
of each element seems floated on a pillowed base. Hard to piece together, but entirely delightful.
M - Incredibly soft, from the oats ? Medium in body, the palate is so delicate, there is no hiding flaws with his back drop. Simply amazing feel from this offering. The more time spent with the offering the more impressive it is.
O - The complexity is inspiring. Lime, oats, the use of salt, but nowhere near traditional. This is simply a delightful offering to be sought out.
Cheers all

750ml bottle poured into a Tired Hands Teku.

A~ soft glowing yellow with a bubbly head and a good amount of lacing.

S~ smells like Brother Soigne with more barnyard brett and lots of lime zest.

T~ really opens up here and is nothing like Brother Soigne haha! crazy amount of lime up front which the salt quickly takes away leading into amazing brett and black pepper with some lingering lime on the back end.

M~ soft with nice carb and super refreshing!

O~ really amazing brew! i'm not a huge fan of salt in general but it really worked well in this aspect. pretty incredible the way this changes on your pallet. i can't wait to drink this pool side! perfect summer beer!
