BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States
hillfarmstead.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

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.

Had this at a share out of a Hill Farmstead taster glass. Juicy was a beer I'd been looking forward to for a long time since I missed out on the opportunity to try the first batch. Honestly, overall I was fairly disappointed with it. Maybe my expectations were too high for it, but it didn't come close to my hopes or what I felt like I should be getting after trading for it. We opened a Vera Mae earlier in the night which I much preferred to Juicy. Further, I don't think this compares to some of the other saisons/wilds that Shaun makes.
