JBPortland (934) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 375ml bottle pours hazy semi-clear gold with small 1 finger head. Nose is funk, barrel, tart golden apples and hay, straw. Mouthfeel is so well balanced, delicate but not thin, just the right amount of moderate carbonation. Taste is bright tart apple skin, funky, woody, hay, citrus, grape, barnyard. Finish is complex white grape, oak, earthy, barrel notes. Complex, elegant, delicious. Wonderful!

Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Brett, yeast, and citrus aromas. Tart, but not overly so, with lemon zest, brett, yeast, and woody highlights. Grass and floral lowlights. Good body, balance, and mouthfeel. Not overly complex, but solid and very drinkable.

brystmar (1290) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Buttery aroma, yet no diacetyl on the palate. Spicy, funky, grassy, oaky taste. Funk & sourness balance impeccably, in typical Shaun fashion. Pretty tasty despite the aroma.

Bottle shared by levifunk...thanks Levi! - Pours hazy yellow with a thin bubbly white head. Nose is yogurt, pineapple, citrus rind, sweat, light tartness, light woodiness. Has an overripe quality to it. Taste is bitter apple, lemon, grapefruit, yogurt, with a dry tartness on the finish. Soft, well-carbonated and fluffy body. Very good stuff.

> Salty Cascade or Lost Abbey type of peach sour

[ Bottle ][ 375mL ][ oteyj ][ Tasting ][ Snifter Tulip ][ 5.28.14 ]
>> Thank you James for the share. Gusher! Low carbonation and no foam sadly, all CO2 must have gone out of solution. Nose is butterscotch, vanilla, pretty funky, salty. Aroma opens up to peach, peaches and cream, salt. Taste is spicy, salty, dusty, mild acetic, sharp peach. Salty sour finish. Gets slight pickle in the nose. Taste is a bit leathery. Nice, complex, but a work in progress. It’s a ’fail’ for Hill Farmstead, which is an A for everyone else.
