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 the bottle into stemmed wine glasses at the Hill Farmstead tasting room on 12/15/16.
Pours a beautiful deep amber with great clarity and one finger of bubbly head.
Aromas of white wine, oak and lots of yeast abound.
Flavors are incredible. So much wine flavor, so much wood, great tartness. Deep, round flavor.
Mouthfeel was excellent and kept drawing me back for another sip.
Possibly the best wild ale I've ever had.

Nice saison with complex tartness. Wine barrel comes through nicely. Glad I was able to try. Batch 2

Great beer, had really nice feel. Tasted fantastic, probably the best Saison I've had from Hill. Had a citrusy tart feel in the mouth. Great color on the pour and the smell was a good funk smell.

Overall a great brew. Tart, complex flavors. The barrel flavor comes through fairly strong. Citrusy, bit of funk in the finish. Bit of spice and vegetable characteristic in their too.
