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.

Pour is a pale hazed straw yellow with a white head. The nose has lots of yeast, a little messy yeast, peppery, fairly strong dusty note, Lots of lemon in back. Taste isn’t as bright, lemon really fades out. A bit of messy yeast, light Saison notes, fairly dusty. Strong carbonation, lighter body, a bit uneven on palate. Lemon and grassy hay like hops through the finish.

Bottle:   Pale straw, bright, faint haze, somewhat assertive carbonation, large pillowy white head, nice lacing.   Bright barnish nose, floral, musty, a little rustic.   Bright, vibrant, and smooth on the tongue.   Floral, a bit rustic, even seems to have a slight white wine aspect.   Very clean, fresh, and a touch dry.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   While smooth up front, it gets a little bubbley on the backside.   Finishes musty, barnish, with floral and bright herbal notes.   Great balance, great beer!
