Merci pour celle là Tommy! Ça sent frais et c’est si beau visuellement! Une mousse tenace, parfaite. Une couleur dorée, légèrement brumeuse. En bouche, les bretts sont bien présentes mais sont équilibrées par le côté fruité. Un exemple à suivre dans l’utilisation des bretts.

Shared bottle via PUB’R. Pours turbid golden with 2-finger, white head with spare lace. Nose is that great Maine/Vermont IPA nose, with honeydew melon, grapefruit, pineapple, hops, and a burst of florals. Tastes hoppy, floral, with melon, pineapple, pear, and a smooth finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
backlog. 375ml bottle. Brewed at Hill Farmstead. Similar in look as the Mikkeller version, nose has more citrus and complex brett. Palate has a creamy lemony character, very much HF character. There is slight citrus hoppyness in the finish. But overall, this is incredibly awesome and showcases what Shaun Hill can do. Incredible stuff

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nice hoppy aroma with citrus and floral. Beer is hazy, minimal head, golden color. Lightly bitter and astringent, long finish with fizzy carbonation. Very complex palate, difficult to analyze. Does not remind typical wheat beer because of hoppiness. Overall, I liked this a lot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, mild gusher. Hazy golden with a medium sized white head with good retention and lace. Nose has lots of white wine, grapes, must, white pepper, white wood. Smells like chardonnay barrels. Flavour follows: flowers, white pepper, must, grapes, wood, white wine, fat. Medium body, lively carbonation, little sweetness, medium bitter, light acidic. Long funky finish, light astingent and light alcohol showing. A bit rough around the edges.

500 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 4/14/2014/
Slightly hazy. Small white head. Thin collar.
Aroma is citrus hops. Doughy malts. A bit of grain. Minimal brett, if at all.
Bright citrus flavor. Orange and lemon. Sweet malts. A little bit of brett in the taste. Grainy wheat. Lingering lemony sweetness.
Easy drinking with some sweetness. Medium carbonation.
Very nice. Doesn’t necessarily stand up to other Hill Farmstead IPAs, though.

Bottle share in Croydon, thanks to Leighton! Vibrant yellow, hazy, sparkling, big foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is restrained bretty lemon, apricot, booze. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Importantly, there’s no acidic tooth-rot. Taste is lemon, grapefruit, dry straw, bretty. Very well rounded and smooth. Not blowing your head off, but just has a great balance to it.
