COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand - the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants Long ago led to the vision of what lies before you. After many months of conditioning with our resident microflora in barrels that formerly held our Mimosa, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed. Ingredients: American and European malts, American and New Zealand hops, Yeast, Brettanomyces, and our well water.

Ferris (12101) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle - Lots of fruit and grapefruit. Clear gold. Tart acidic citrus and a dry finish. Nice but a bit overhyped in my mind.

joeneugs (5486) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle at RateBeer Best. It pours a clear deep orange color with a white head. The aroma is funky and herbal with some over ripe apricots. The flavor is the same. Herbal, funky apricot and grapefruit. A little hard candy-like fruitiness. Some minerals on the palate. Surprisingly full bodied for the style, but dry and tart in the finish. Higher notes of alcohol are noticed. Overall, very good.

Homer321 (4020) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle at RBWG 2016. Nose is a soft lemon and hay. Very clear orange with small white head. Some apricot as it warms. Taste isn’t that tart. Moderate orange character. Decent but more like a saison. Not very funky

marcus (8894) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 31, 2016
From bottle at Ratebeer Awards. Pours orange copper with a tiny beige head and a fruity sroma. There is a sourish very unusual fruit and light malt flavor. Delicate and delicious.

thirdeye11 (6019) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2016
(375ml bottle) slightly cloudy deep gold, lasting fine white bubbles and nice lacing. Nose of slightly earthy brett, typical Hill Farmstead funk/terroir, saison yeast, wine barrel, very slight hint of manure/dairy cows, touch of souring bacteria, clean and bright, dry hops, citrus peel and pulp, touch of minerality and chalkiness too. Exceptionally complex. Taste is even better, touch of brett, horseblanket, citrus peel, wine barrel (white wine?), souring bacteria (though mildly so), medium carbonation, excellent palate finish.

Beerman6686 (6169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Poured a lightly hazy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was of citrus rind, light funk, grassy hops, brett. Flavor similar, moderately tart, lots of sweet tart character. Pretty damn good, but not quite the magic of some of their others.
