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.

Bottle from gnosis.. thanks.. Bottle back to back with Arthur.. Pour is paler yellow with same 3 finger head. A bit clearer than the Arthur. Lemon, pepper, cloves, sage on the nose..a bit more herbal and lighter smelling. Wow.. buckwheat, honey, citrus, mint. More carbonated and less tart than the Arthur. Same creamy feel but slightly crisper. Prefer the Arthur’s tartness but the Florence nose.

joeneugs (5355) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 20, 2016
750 ml. bottle. It pours a very clear pale yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is soft and lightly spicy with some pale malt, dusty yeast, a little citrus grapefruit, orange and some light bretty barnyard notes. The flavor is dry and funky with some melon, grapefruit and light earthy hops. Effervescent carbonation with more heavy funk in the finish. Ok. Kind of lackluster compared to other HF products.
