Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States
hillfarmstead.com

Style: Belgian Saison

Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed over two years ago and allowed to age in chardonnay wine barrels for 18 months, this was brewed with barley, oats, wheat, honey and Nelson Sauvin hops, then aged on gooseberries and Northern Kiwi fruit from our friends at Elmore Roots in Elmore, Vermont. This beer and recipe is based upon a 2006 pilot brew version of a New Zeland inspired beer - which, loosely, would become Juicy.

375 mL bottle. Clear golden body. Smells of strong hops, hefty oak presence, white wine. Tastes of grape, hops, some citrus, white wine. More strong oak. A little bit tart in the finish. Oaky finish. Intense barrel character but very tasty.

Pleasing cloudiness
Tasty.
Perfect funk.
Delightful effervescence.
Perfectly balanced.
Even barrelling.
Perfect drying on the tongue yet crisp.
Lemon. Hay. Delicate hops. Gentle pucker.
Just damn good. If this wasn't so rare it would be a all. day. long.
