3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour reveals a cloudy yellow color with a thick, white head. The aroma is quite yeasty, with spices, hops and wheat, it’s very appealing. The flavor is well-balanced, there’s hops, yeast, wheat and somes spicyness. The body is medium with a creamy, slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. This is really good, it’s a Hill Farmstead beer, after all!

Thanks Keef. Bottled earlier.
Nice light grain on lemon color with a solid quilt of white fines and drapes of lace. Nice nose here. Plenty of grain, soil, hints of horse, some manure and clay. Slightest hint of lemon in the nose. Slightest tart with lemon flavor, grain, yeast, some tasty light pilsner character. Medium on full bodied with soft carbonation and a wet finish. This is a really desirable beer.

Dry and bubbley on the tongue, wheaty, bright shrubbiness, a little musty and barnish. A little mineral water like on the backside but its minor. Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. Super dry finish, wheaty, with lingering shrubs. Pretty tasty for a 4% beer!
