Bottle purchased for onsite consumption at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend, VT. Batch 6, looks to have been bottled in 2014?

This one pours with a slightly hazed straw yellow color, with a bit of fluffy head and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like funky lemon candy, wheat, oak, earthy white wine, and dank citrus.

This is exceptional, especially at this advanced age (4+ years). It's got such a deep citrusy funk, wheaty and floral, with a great oakiness. It's so wild and untamed, but also delicate and soft.

This is pretty light bodied, but very creamy and unbelievably drinkable. If this wasn't so difficult to acquire, I'd drink it everyday.

This beer is impressive both in the depth of flavor and it's long term aging ability.

Florence is probably my favorite shelf Saison beer from HF so it's no wonder this one is amazing. It takes everything from the regular and amps it up with a nice tartness and oak character. Screams that HF signature funk with a bit of lemon/lime character as well.

Wow. This is easily the best sour I've ever had. Pours bright red in the glass with a trace of head. Hill Farmstead funk without being overpowering. Loved it!!!
