750ml bottle poured into a blue (haha) Hill Farmstead taster.

"Blue label was a goof by the printer - but it turns out that the blue label is a very different beer - we inoculated it with a different yeast strain. Very tart. -Shaun E. Hill"

A~ glowing orange almost geuze like. huge head at first that dissipated quickly and a little lacing.

S~ straight citrus bomb with a lot of black pepper and a little amber malt.

T~ slightly oxidized but it adds to it with nice candied oranges. tons of citrus: orange, lemon, lime, guava, tangerine, passion fruit and so on... wrapped in a lot of black peppery saison yeast. ending with nice bright brett funk. even more citurs as it warms

M~ smooth, a little too much carb. but it works well.

O~ this beer is beautiful! glad to finally get to try this one! its a million times different than regular Arthur, the different yeast strain really turned this into something incredible. very surprised how lambic like this is. if i drank this blind i'd probably say its some kind of unblended lambic with a ton of citrus added. BRIGHT!
