Notes / Commercial Description:
Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand—the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants a decade ago has led to the vision of what lies before you. After more than a year conditioning in wine barrels with our resident microflora, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden copper pour. 1.5 fingers of foamy white head... falls fast, great rim of lacing.

S: Tart and oaky... white wine and tannin, lightly fruity.

T/F: Follows the nose. Pleasantly tart without being sour. Strong barrel character... somewhat dry and fruity. White wine... grape must... light peach. Very mild hop presence... all the flavors mingle together quite well. Brett is there but well incorporated. The finish is semi-dry and tart fruit.

O: An awesome barrel-aged Saison, and a real treat. Very glad I got to try this one.

2016 bottle (Batch 3) into Hill Farmstead flute bottle.

Light amber in color with a good bit of foam head upon an aggressive pour. Wonderful floral aromas and taste. Fruity flavor. Brett is present but not offensive. Not overly tart or overly acidic. Very balanced saison that is pleasant and easy to drink. One of the best I've had.
