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 Long ago led to the vision of what lies before you. After many months of conditioning with our resident microflora in barrels that formerly held our Mimosa, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed. Ingredients: American and European malts, American and New Zealand hops, Yeast, Brettanomyces, and our well water.

Pour is copper orange with a thin tan head that dissipates immediately. Nose is fruity, light hints of brett and some peppery yeasty notes with some malt lingering in. Lots of mango and tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and fairly bright. Brett is underneath but a hint disorganized. Lots of mango and pineapple. Tropical fruits with the Brett and notes of muddled malt trough the finish. Body is light with very strong carbonation as semi dry finish.

Bottle shared by LeninCat @ Armin’s - thanks! Big hoppy and tropical fruit and funk in the nose. Hazy yellow pour with a nice white head. Taste is really nice - refreshing, bright, hoppy and just a bit of tartness and bitterness in the finish.

A- pours a hazy golden yellow with a delicate white head that dissipates quickly. Virtually no lacing. S- fantastic pineapple, grapefruit, grass, sweet cream butter, oak, musty/dank New England farmhouse, wool, lemon, white wine grapes, herbal spices, coriander, astringent, and manzanita blossoms. M- light sticky body with a dry, sweet and sour medium palate. Bright carbonation. T- pineapple and grapefruit are strong, wild and pleasant up front. Malts, melon and brett throughout. Oak, must, herbal spices, white wine in the dry middle. Stone fruit supports. Long bitter ending is lemon zest, grapefruit, white pepper, zinc, cheese funk. Great beer for Thanksgiving dinner.

Bottle. Oteyj you are the man. Stunning opaque peach colored pour with a giant fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are outrageous; legitimately ridiculous. Apricot, mango, blood orange, lemon, cheesecloth, horseblanket.... the list goes on. An awesome combination of fruit and funk. Hill Farmstead saison/barrel program at its finest.
