Notes / Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

Poured from a 750ml bottle purchased after the release in spring of 2014.
Smell is floral, grassy, banana, citrus fruits.
Taste is slightly tart, you get some banana/Belgian yeastiness. White wine, lemon, dankiness.
Mouthfeel tart, sour, acidic.
Overall, an interesting farmhouse/saison from HF. Of course they knock it out of the park on this one. Worth the $20 I spent.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is light orange and hazy with a white head. Aromas include wine, honey, grass, sunshine, citrus. Smells great. Similar flavor. lemons and grass with citrus and floral notes. Medium bodied and tangy. Another fabulous saison from Hill Farmstead.

Huge thanks to Tom10101 for picking up and sending out this huge want.

A: Copper yellow haze topped with 3 fingers of white foam and settles down to a single layer across the glass. Streams of carbonation race to the top, suggesting a snappy carbonation.

S: Lemony dank basement with muskiness, yeasts and wheatiness topped with some minerals. Finish is a little acid and as it warms some notes of under ripe banana.

T: Lemony acidity with sourness of grape skins and brett funk. Wheaty notes with medical herbal notes and chalky minerals.

M: Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation combined with light crisp tartness.

O: A refreshing and tangy drink grounded with funkiness and wheat. Light and refreshing it holds nothing back in the tart and sour department and never plays down to a crowd looking for something sweet. Bold and assertive.
