COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Florence (1915-1967) was our grandfather’s sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Belgian inspired Wheat ale is crafted from American malted barley, Organic Vermont wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Soft, cloudy, and fresh, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Florence. 5% ALC/VOL 12º P Ingredients: Pale Malt; Vermont Organic Wheat; American and European Hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Beautiful light pale fluffy pour. Vanilla aroma notes, some oak, wood, barnyard and sour pediococcus. Lovely balance, less wheaty hop characteristic than expected, which is awesome. Lovely soury aftertaste. Top!

A big bright yellow color. Foggy thick head. Heavy lacing. Really nice tart grassy aroma. Full of lemon with a wheaty taste. Dry finish. Very quenching. Extremely drinkable. One that can really define the style to me.

I thought this was a very good beer. The nose is great and while the taste is a bit mellower and not as complex, it is very good. Well worth checking out.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Tasted on 2/6/15 from a capped 750mL bottle that I shared with the group. Pours cloudy straw with a huge thick head that very slowly recedes to messy lace. The nose is spicy saison, green apple skin, lemon pith, a touch herbal, very complex. The flavor is all of the same complexity, really great tartness. The body is fairly light with lively carbonation and a long tart apple skin and touch of spicy lemon peel finish.

Smell is light sour, wheat, and yeast. Taste is the same with mild funk in the aftertaste. Low carbonation with no foam.

sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
Bouteille 75cl, thanks Steve for the share. Bottled 12/2013. Dorée sur un léger trouble tirant sur la paille, col fin blanc. Arôme st fleuri avec des effluves de grains que l’on note sur de nombreuses versions de Hillfarm. Fruité modéré et une approche houblonnée rappelant le houblonné noble. Petite pointe de levure suggérant un usage de brett, Palais est centré sur le fruité et le grains (wheat), pointe d’agrumes et un léger fleuri. Fini est sec avec encore une présence levure restant agréable. Amertume perdure sur la fin sans pour cela être l’élément dominant de la bière.

750 ml bottle shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt. Pours a hazy translucent golden white color with lasting white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is saison yeast, wheat and malt with a mild barnyard citrus character. Flavor is same with sweet malt and funky yeast aspects. Medium bodied, bright carbonation, tangy funk wheat finish. Delicious.
