BEER INFO

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.

Reminds me of a Gueuze. Lots of funky goodness I swear if you had this blind you would guess Belgian Gueuze. It's super complex, LOTS of oak and earthy fruit, dried white grapes and lemon peel, but that aroma tho... So funky so cool! Give me more please!

Poured out as a hazy orange yellow color with a thin head on top. The smell of the beer was a little hoppy but had a subtle wine barrel funk on the nose as well. The taste of the beer had a subtle tartness to it along with a decent bitter finish. The feel was thicker than I expected. Overall it's a good beer but not one of the best from Hill Farmstead in my opinion.

Overall a very nice HF saison. I enjoyed this very much, and the aromas were extremely enjoyable. The color on this was my favorite part though, Hill Farmstead makes some pretty brews.
