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 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.

Big thanks to Curt for sharing this with us. The brew pours a clear golden with white cap that holds well. The aroma is a pleasant mix of vinous and lemony lactic character and mild vegetal hop mix. The taste carries forth everything listed in the nose - lemony lactic aspect mingled with soft vinous appeal and a hint of caramel/vanilla oakiness. This is light in body with modest carbonation. Overall a very easy drinking and enjoyable brew that I would certainly like to drink again but the cost of admission and rarity/hype likely put this one out of reasonable reach.

Golden orange color. White head.

Sour and funky. Gary. Grapes and wine flavors. Green apples and lemon citrus. Peppercorn and spice. Very complex saison. Lots of flavors. Love the fruit flavors here.

Light bodied. Easy to drink. A little funk on the finish.

One of the better ones from HF.
