COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Borne of our abiding friendship with Belgium’s La Brasserie de Blaugies, Pierre-Alex and Kevin Carlier brewed with us here in June of 2013. The resulting beer—brewed with hops from Mons, Belgium, and 30% raw organic buckwheat; fermented in both oak barrels and stainless steel; and aged for many months in those same barrels—is among the finest farmhouse ales we’ve ever produced. Vibrant, lively and sophisticated, its bracing tartness belies its elegant wine-like profile. We were honored to have brewed with Pierre-Alex and Kevin; we are delighted to share it with you.

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.

Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2016
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

pushkinwow (2486) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
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.

Kville. Bottle. Pours hazy pale amber with a great beigish head. Aroma is delicate balanced funky stable earthy lemon zest crackers. Flavor is sour funky astringent vinous dry some bitterness which together with astringency leaves a longlived bitterness on the palate.

jredmond (7183) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2015
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.
