Shared at a bottle share, hosted by Mickey before the U-of-M game on October 10. Poured from a 750 mL bottle that I brought. The pour is a nice foggy orangey-gold with a nice thick white head and some great lacing as it falls down. The aroma is pretty good. I wasn’t expecting this one. It’s got a lot of lime citrus, a little pepper, and some solid funkiness. It’s light and crisp. The flavor mimics this. There seems to be a little more tropical fruit in it with the distinct lime and lemon zest coming through on the forefront. The flavor is just like the nose, in that it just is crisp and clean. The mouth feel is a little thin, but the carbonation really helps out here. There is an excellent crispness to it, and for me not being a fan of saisons, this is just good. I need to drink more Hill Farmstead stuff now.

Bright sunny orange. Fast-vanishing dotty head. Very dry, clean and straightforward. Almost dusty and slightly funky (not very). Touch of citrus sweetness in the periphery. Medium carbonation and short-lived. Simple and good but not unbelievable.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate lime, lemon, lemon peel, and faint florals. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate tart citrus. The finish has light-moderate lime, lemon, lemon peel, and a giant florals. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, super refreshing and drinkable.
