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.

Huge, huge thanks to Evan for this one. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Slow gusher as I pop the cap. Nothing big, but have a glass at the ready. Pour yields a deep peach-colored brew with a nice two-finger white head. Good retention and plenty of lacing as it goes down. Thin cap throughout. The initial nose provides a good dose of honeydew alongside tropical fruit. Mild funk and white-wine character in the background. Touch of citrus rind and very light straw. Flavor is incredible. Absolutely fantastic. Notes of melon and white wine overlay a very light acidity. Just a touch of oak in the background as well as some mild underlying Brett. Body is light with a mild underlying bitterness. Acidity is quite light and is more along the lines of a mild citrus character rather than straight lactic acid. There’s a touch of creaminess in the background. Perhaps not creamy, but just a bit of wheat character. Overall, on the level with the best Hill Farmstead beers. Phenomenal, to say the least. Can we officially name Hill Farmstead the best brewery in the world?

375 ml bottle shared by urbancaver- thanks again, Cam! Pours a cloudy orange gold with a small wispy white head that leaves a ring around the edge, too. The aroma was malty and musty, and I couldn’t get a whole lot through it; notes of orange zest, bread, mineral water, grass, and hay. The flavor brings more "Juicy" character, with orange, pineapple, bready malts, earth, hay, peach, apricot - nice and funky. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity mouthfeel. Mineralic, too. Doesn’t live up to the hype, or maybe it’s just aged out of its prime; drink or trade if you still have one. Do not age any longer.

gEUS (1395) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2015
Small bottle at home. Pours hazy dark golden orange with a small white head. Nice tangerine and orange peel aroma, some dried peach, thyme and white wine notes. Light to medium body with a nice subtle sourness going over in a dry soft bitterness. Taste is lots of stewed peach, aftertaste is soo nice, like a fine orange bitter.

Bottle @ New Years Tasting, courtesy of kermis. Pours a hazy orange beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of barnyard, horse manure, dusty blankets. Flavor is medium sour, slightly yeasty breadyness in there, fruity and has some vineous characters in the back. Great complexity going on here, even after the age.
