4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to jwale73 for this bottle!! Pours super hazy pale yellow with a white crown and lumpy lacing. Smell is pepper, spice, lemon. Taste starts of peppery then it is citric flowing into sourness from the brett and it all ends very dry and citric. Light in body and smooth...slightly slippery. A splendid beer - my friend said that it reminded him of a berliner weise...I think there is truth to that.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 750ml bottle in a Hill Farmstead glass. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of light wheat, hints of tartness, floral hops, and a nice light fruit/spiciness. Flavor the same with a great blend of everything. Fluffy texture like all of the HF beers. Another great Hill Farmstead beer... Can you do no wrong?
Edit: bottle on Jan. 4, 2014. Still amazing. Nicely tart and greatly balanced.
