Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

Notes: Limited (brewed once) availibility. In October of 2018, we brewed a batch of Marie—our single-decocted, unfiltered, German-style Helles—and lagered a portion of it at 3º Celsius, as we have with Poetica, in our now cherished French oak puncheon. After three months of conditioning, we moved the beer to stainless steel and krausened with fresh-fermenting Mary to provide natural carbonation.

Following more than a month of slow, gentle carbonation, we now proudly pour for you an elevated expression of Marie, one that demonstrates our progressive pursuit for refinement while honoring and ennobling the most inspiring elements of classical brewing tradition.

Soft. Sincere. Simple.

On-tap at the Ormsby Abbey. Served in a dimpled mug. Pours a lovely golden hue with a slight haze to the clarity and a rocky, one 1.5 inch bright white head. Nose is exquisite - delicate bready and grassy notes. Nice and clean. Taste follows nose with the addition of a hint of lemon in the background. Mouthfeel is light in body with a soft, easy carbonation. Overall, perfectly balanced and deliciously refreshing; however, I don't get the notes of oak suggested by the description.

On tap at Hill Farmstead. Faintly hazy yellow. Big fluffy head. Smells of soft bready malt and light grain. Floral notes. Tastes of doughy bread and grain. Floral hops. Lightly spicy hops. Dry finish. Very soft palate. Low carbonation, but not creamy. A softer version of Marie, which is fantastic.
