4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big thanks to Mac for sharing! Delicate, immersive aroma with layers of funky, citric complexity. Spicy and dry, funky but not overly dependent on the farmhouse.
Juicy is appropriately named; highly citric base delivers a mouthful of tangerines ready to be zapped by the microflora remnants. Dangerously close to Mimosa.
Savor each sip: there's tons to appreciate here. Brewing mastery in a bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at RateBeer Best. It pours a clear deep orange color with a white head. The aroma is funky and herbal with some over ripe apricots. The flavor is the same. Herbal, funky apricot and grapefruit. A little hard candy-like fruitiness. Some minerals on the palate. Surprisingly full bodied for the style, but dry and tart in the finish. Higher notes of alcohol are noticed. Overall, very good.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Nose is a soft lemon and hay. Very clear orange with small white head. Some apricot as it warms. Taste isn’t that tart. Moderate orange character. Decent but more like a saison. Not very funky

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(375ml bottle) slightly cloudy deep gold, lasting fine white bubbles and nice lacing. Nose of slightly earthy brett, typical Hill Farmstead funk/terroir, saison yeast, wine barrel, very slight hint of manure/dairy cows, touch of souring bacteria, clean and bright, dry hops, citrus peel and pulp, touch of minerality and chalkiness too. Exceptionally complex. Taste is even better, touch of brett, horseblanket, citrus peel, wine barrel (white wine?), souring bacteria (though mildly so), medium carbonation, excellent palate finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a lightly hazy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was of citrus rind, light funk, grassy hops, brett. Flavor similar, moderately tart, lots of sweet tart character. Pretty damn good, but not quite the magic of some of their others.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Batch 2 bottle. Pours a hazy golden color, orange hues....almost peach in color. Small fizzy white head breaks into some fine lace. Aromas have a noticeable Brett character, vinous notes with oak, some mineral notes and some stonefruit. Taste is initially dry Brett and oak upfront, but hits a nice light tart note mid-palate. Grapefruit juice is what I get here. Transitioning into some peach, mango, nectarine sweetness. Finishes with nice wine barrel touches, dry and clean. Light mineral notes. Really tasty stuff and glad to have tried it!
