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.

Huge, huge thanks to Evan for this one. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Slow gusher as I pop the cap. Nothing big, but have a glass at the ready. Pour yields a deep peach-colored brew with a nice two-finger white head. Good retention and plenty of lacing as it goes down. Thin cap throughout. The initial nose provides a good dose of honeydew alongside tropical fruit. Mild funk and white-wine character in the background. Touch of citrus rind and very light straw. Flavor is incredible. Absolutely fantastic. Notes of melon and white wine overlay a very light acidity. Just a touch of oak in the background as well as some mild underlying Brett. Body is light with a mild underlying bitterness. Acidity is quite light and is more along the lines of a mild citrus character rather than straight lactic acid. There’s a touch of creaminess in the background. Perhaps not creamy, but just a bit of wheat character. Overall, on the level with the best Hill Farmstead beers. Phenomenal, to say the least. Can we officially name Hill Farmstead the best brewery in the world?

77ships (7251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle sampled @ Hopishop #3. 2015 10 10. Wowza this one was expensive. Dark orange with no head. Nose is massive white wine funk, raw funk, massive white wine, indeed hugely juicy with some kiwi, citrus, as with the other HF brett, beers, brett, bacteria etc. are massive & almost chewy here, same goes for the taste. Taste is indeed massively juicy rustic white wine, wet burlap sack, wild grape, massive brett, white grape, funk, wine is massive & delicious on this one, low lemon, juicy green apple. Thick chewy brett body & massive wine. This one already carries quite a bit of age but I do feel like it would improve even further & clean out a bit. Still this is indeed massively juicy & with vibrant & rich wine tastes. I touch less dominant HF brett would improve this one a bit for me but already very nice & aptly named.

Bottle from thepatrickman-thanks for a huge longtime want! Pours a deep bright orange. Nose is bright orange citrus and some dank, slightly catty hops, along with some wine barrel, and sweaty and tropical brett character. Mouthfeel is plush with solid malt back with flavors following the nose. Slightly chewy and drying finish.
