I figured I should probably rate this now that I’m drinking it for the 7th time. I have two more bottles. Thanks Adam for opening one of yours. This beer is killer. Pours a dark golden color with some retained white head. Smells like lime and lemon and grass. Flavor is so nice though. A really beautiful balance of some white wine, a very manageable but defined tartness, and a smooth citrus finish. I love this beer. Could drink it every day if I had the opportunity.

Shared 0.75l bottle shared @ NYC flat . It wants out! This is a cloudy looking one, yellow golden colored with a nice big white fading head. Smells really good this! Dryish, mild fruity, grapes, pear? Yeah, some pear. Nice stuff for sure. Tastes superb. Lemonic sour, a little sharp. It’s high on the carbonation, mild oily in the mouth. So refreshing. Amazing tasty. Zesty, mild honey in back. Just a lovely one. 19.06.2015

Bottle shared at Ottawa 2015 end-of-year bash, thanks Ian for pulling this one out, probably one of my favourites from the evening. Hazy amber with a billowy and enthusiastic head that is maintained throughout. Unbelievably smooth and easy to drink, dry and refreshing, lemon zest, hay, some grass, mild barnyard funk and hints of tartness on each sip, moderate+ carbonation and full bodies yet light, some wheat and cellar notes. Delicious.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on Draft at FOFA 2015 with Linh, Paul, Vinny and Al. Pours a deep golden yellow with nice haze and white head. Nice lacing throughout. Aroma is salty lime, tart yeast, funky lemon, sour stone fruits, sour dough and white wine barrel. Mouthfeel is very clean; on the lighter side of medium-bodied with notes of dank oak, sour fruits – peach, lime, additional tropical notes; nice, restrained acidity with additional notes of funky barn, lemon, citrus, tart wheat, light yogurt and tart candy character. The flavors are pretty diverse, but also extremely balanced with nothin really dominating. Like many other Hill beers, this one is no different in its ability to showcase a near perfect palate/mouthfeel.
