3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally reviewed on 9/8/2014. 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy orange body. Nice white head. Chunky islands of foam. White wine aroma first. Interesting grain aroma that I guess is buckwheat. Light toasty aroma. Light lemon. Tastesmostly of white wine as well. Very light acidity. Grainy with very little sweetness. Light citrus, maybe from hops, maybe from yeast. High carbonation. Medium light body. It’s good, but it’s lacking in body and sweetness to carry the wine barrel flavors.

Bottle @ Travlr’s Satellite 10k Shindig. Thanks, Leighton! Hazy gold with a small head. Nose is wonderfully bright. Tangerine and spring fruit salad. Lemon and salt. Delicate botanical character. Similar flavor. Some sharp mandarin orange. Aromatic tea. More citrus. Expressive on the palate. Zippy. Very accomplished. One of HF’s best.

750ml bottle I picked up at the brewery pours a hazy gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose has some funk and cheese, eggy even, lemon juice, white grapefruit, vegetal, straw and hay. Nose is solid but doesn’t sparkle. Flavor has nice lemon juice acidity, some yeast, some champagne vinegar, white grapefruit, mild buttered biscuit, vegetal, hay, extremely well balanced. A bright, acidic finish.

Bottle sample 5+ oz. during a local tasting. Pours a hazy bright golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor had a unique character from the buckwheat, funky, fruity, citrus, oak, wine barrel character, vinous, grass, the aroma was enticing and the flavor followed suit, lightly acidic, great mouth feel, solid beer.
