4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the brewery shared with Paul. Pours a bright pinkish red body with thick white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is super floral - the hibiscus cuts through the tart fruits with a nice dry presence. Mouthfeel is tart and dry with notes of tart florals, lemons, sour berries, sweet strawberries and additional sour fruits. Great.

Bottle shared by PhillyCraft. Thanks Vin! It pours a reddish purple color with a small off white head. The aroma has some nice berry tartness with strong sweet hibiscus and a decent amount of farty funk. The flavor is a bit cleaner with more tart berries and hibiscus. Touches of sulfer and phenolics before a refreshing and mildly tart finish. Very drinkable.

Bottle from some bro. Thanks. Pours a hazed light rose color with blood orange accents. Aromas of citrus, some unknown garden scents. Taste is slightly tart and dry. Low to no bitterness. Flavors of lightly tart brushed citrus fruit, slight berry component, drying finish. High carbonation. Highly crushable, very refreshing. A very well made beer, although I wouldn’t waste the time/effort/money to seek it out again. There are better beers just sitting on the shelf, as I suspect is the case with all hill farmstead/grassroots beers.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille 750 mL. Rose semi-translucide. Nez léger: un peu floral et légèrement citrique. Bouche acide et rafraichissante avec forte effervescence: zeste de citron, pomme-grenade et tartre. Pas très complexe, mais agréable par une journée chaude comme un bon crémant...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottled in Aug 2013. The color of this beer is beautiful, light rose color with a nice ring of head in the snifter. Aroma is mostly Brettanomyces with hints of flowers.
Flavor is Brett up front with a nice steady floral note through the center. The lemon citrus is fresh and lingers long after the sip. Hints of kumquat and limes with a extremely dry finish. Effervescent mouthfeel that begs you to drink more. Really great Brett saison.
