Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

Notes: Limited (brewed once) availibility. Blended in the winter of 2017 and packaged in early 2018, this batch consists of several unique and independent threads—including Anna; an experimental buckwheat Farmstead® ale that would lead towards Samuel; Juicy; and Sankt Hans—all of which weave together to form a beautiful sensory image greater than the sum of its parts.

4.54/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle purchased from the brewery, shared 4 days after initial release.

Pours golden, mostly clear with careful pour, thin big bubbled layer that settles into bubbly collar.

Aroma is bright, lemon zest, oaky barrel, some wine grape and honey.

The flavor is rich and layered. Lots going on here and continues to evolve as it gets closer to room temperature. First taste has bright citrus, meyer lemon zest, white wine grape and earthy oak barrel. As it warms a hint of sweetness and light fleshed tropical fruits pushes through the moderate tartness. A layer of grass, minor earthy funk and herbal spiciness is present as well.

Moderate carbonation and a crisp medium body.

Overall a beautiful blend of flavors, nothing out of place.

aromas bring bright fruity acidity, smooth graininess throughout, funky, lactic yogurt quality slight peppery spice, oaky notes hinting at some sweetness reminiscent of vanilla or honey. there is lemon, crisp green apple, underripe nectarines and kiw, white grape and wine qualities - very cohesive aroma, quite inviting.

palate follows with a bright blast of lemon zest and apple up front... this one has a snappy crispness to it! musty peach skin for days, apricot yogurt, funky kiwi quality, sweetness of honey and vanilla to match the solid amount of tartness this one brings. there is a hint of cherry candies, cherry skin, white grape must, white wine, oak, funky spice, hinting at pepper. beautiful complexity but the grainy quality throughout ties it together so well... there is an ineffable 'rightness' to this beer. wow!
