Jan 2019. Dang, very nice- pretty heavy on the Hill Farmstead influence. Clear bodied, crisp lemon and mild funk, slight lactate, dry pinot gris, mild citrusy sweetness.

This one pours a bright golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like oak, white wine, peach, stone fruit in general, grape skin, and musty funk.

This is super promising for a new brewery tackling complex styles. The citrusy funk feels well-developed already, with a bit of must, and lots of citrus/stone fruit type flavors. There's a bit of wine-like acidity, soft, and not super sour, along with a touch of oak.

This is light bodied, and very clean, with a pretty low level of acidity, and a high drinkability.

This brewery really needs to be watched - I can tell they're gonna keep getting better and better.

750 ml. bottle.
Brewed January, 2019.
Bottled 08/23/2019.
Moderate pour yields a nearly one inch creamy white head over a slightly hazy, straw colored body with sticky lacing. Nose of slight funk, citrus, and a bit of floral/herbal thing going on as well. Taste mirrors nose very nicely with a smooth, well balanced experience throughout and finishing with a medium, citrus tartness. Nice feel and overall, a real pleasure to drink. Cheers to Lillian for another stellar offering!
