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.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear pale golden to yellow beer topped by a small white head that stays. It’s very fruity on the nose, with lemon juice, grapefruit, tropical notes and a hint of yeast. It’s lightly acidic on the palate, pleasantly carbonated, dry and medium to full bodied. Lemon juice, some pine cones, a little bitterness and a touch of tropical fruits in the flavor. Grapefruit and pepper hints too. Lasting finish. A tad boring in a way, but very refreshing and quenching. 150704

Growler thanks to GT. Cloudy pale straw pour with a white head. Lemony aroma, some white pepper, coriander, and orange. Doughy malt, biscuit, and cracker. Notes of pear and banana, too. Maybe a bit of sulfur? Kind of pedestrian. Flavors of lemon and orange peel, pepper, coriander, and pear. Has more of a witbier character than saison. Dough, biscuit, and cracker malt notes. Just okay.
