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.

Sample at First Sunday. Another subtle and well made beer here. Fruity lemon aroma. Finish is a little sour and funky. Earthy grass and hay hop aromas and flavors are most prominent but all complementary and well rounded.

tectactoe (1886) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle: Hazy, bright golden body with a soapy & bright white head that leaves lots of blotchy lacing as it recedes. Sour wheat aroma, white grape, pear skins, light musty cotton, some mildly barnyardy funk, tart lemon. Little bit of vibrant yeast & hay. Nicely tart up front; lemon, white grape, citrus. Sharp, dry with a good dose of musty yeast, mineral water, & pale malts. Tart, dry finish, very clean with a lingering grape & pear flavor, leaves you craving more. Delicious beer, drinkable as hell.

Bottle "14 release. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Mild wheat and yeast aromas. Smoothness from the wheat blends nicely with the somewhat tart lemon and citrus notes. A bit on the tangy side with bread and floral back beats. A really solid saison. Above average body and mouthfeel.
