Got this in a bomber at the brewery last week. My wife and I drank out of coffee tin cups while camping, so didn't get a great look at it. It was fresh though and had a wonderful funky smell and taste typical of HF farmhouse ales. The local wildflower honey was a nice touch that was both noticeable and enjoyable. Both my wife and I really enjoyed it.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with nice frothy white head. Smells of mineral water, elderberry flowers, honey, rose hips, and floral bouquet. Wheat malt with slightly doughy notes. Tastes sweet with a light to medium tartness. Some red wine, acetic notes, in the flavor and aftertaste. Some light funk and light barrel notes (I.e. oak) make this beer quite complex yet delicate. Like a fine wine. Awesomely done. Drinks medium bodies due to the funkiness. Wow. Really good. Glad to have picked this up to my voyage up to HF back in January 2018. Worth the trip!
