This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a thin white cap of a head slowly dissipated nicely. The aroma starts off with a lemon twang in front of fresh juniper needles. Light grassiness. The flavor brings it all together and adds a touch of cedar wood, very dryly. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sipping sour to bitter feel dragging on my tongue. Carbonation feels low. Overall, they’re defining it as a saison, slightly fits. But then again, makes me think that practically anything can be a saison these days. Good for what it is, I’d still have again.

375ml bottle, dated June 22, 2016, poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

The beer pours a light amber and copper color, hazy and cloudy with a lovely white head, about two fingers high that has great retention and lace. The aroma is quite nice, herbal and piney, lightly floral, a touch of funk, bready with a bit of wine like character. The flavors are very nice, herbal, like smelling a fresh garden, piney and coniferous with nice juniper qualities, tart citrus, wildflower, amber malts with some nice funkiness and a mineral water that is distinctive of beers made by or at Hill Farmstead. The mouthfeel is good, coating, creamy, active carbonation with a medium body that finishes easily with a pleasant tartness.

Verdict: A very nice Farmhouse Ale from Casita Cerveceria, really nice showing of the adjuncts presented. The tartness goes very well with the piney and herbal qualities yet it remains fairly refreshing and quaffable. Certainly a new brewery to keep an eye on.

Pour from a bottle at the Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales. I really liked this - all of the flavors were perfectly balanced and made for a very refreshing beer. Definitely my sleeper pick from FoFA.

Poured from a 375 ml bottle dated 06/22/2016 into the modified tulip glass.
A - Opaque orange blossom honey colored backdrop. Refined carbonation meanders skyward, participating in the accumulated cap of off white.
S - Aged orange, cedar plank mingles with green grape skin, young spruce forest and lightly toasted oak. A gentle coaxing from floral hops finish this aromatic experience in the tropics. Warm melon, papaya and pineapple.
T - Completely unexpected based on the ingredient list, slightly tart start, warm cedar, light grains, a touch of wheat? The conifer component is balanced well with orange and kisses from lemon.
M - Gentle on the palate, water display is soft and luxurious. The start is a bit tart, then a bit of oiliness moves in, nudging from carbonation moves through that element, leaving a sweet/tart calling card.
O - A delightful offering from Casita Cerveceria. I am struck at how pine cedar and spruce are the base for a wonderfully citrus forward offering. Well done
