A: Pours a strawberry pink ale. Excellent clarity. Light pink foam cap of a single finger falls to a sheet of the same. No lacing. very pretty beer.
S: Initially, there wasn’t much in the nose here. Took a few minutes before the farm, funk, vinegar, blueberries all came through.
T: Tart! Wowza! Very nice. Lots of blueberry. Oh yeah, and oak, tart, brett, blah blah. The sour blueberries hooked this up!
M: Medium body with medium to high carbonation. Dries the palate.
O: Fuck yeah! Delicious beer. I wish I hadn’t traded three of the six I had this year.

Pours a hazy purple blue color with a finger of pinkish grey foam. The nose is rustic blueberry flesh, dusty oak and basement funk. The palate follows with great yogurt like acidity, touch of sweet blueberry puree, some less sweet rustic blueberry flesh with tannic skin notes blending nicely with wet wood, dusty basement funk. Well integrated sour with a soft dry finish !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at Pizza Plant with Dan the owner and others, a couple of years back and the review not loaded. The smell is great, you know its a sour and the yeast adds further delight. Medium mouthfeel with a sourness, its a sipper and comes across like a wine or good fruit wine. A very good sour beer. Complex in the mouth, with the yeast and residual sugar offsetting some of the sourness, not a palate shredder as I feared. However my palate still records it many hours later.Peachy colour with good head.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with big thanks to jtclockwork! Batch #E!041. Pours hazy orange amber, perhaps a touch of pink. Dusty rose, I like that. Last third of the bottle pours cloudy as the yeast and sediment start to mix in. Small white head that laces pretty well. Aroma is lightly tart, lemon, Brett, barnyard, fruity, earthy. Flavor is the same, light sweetness nicely balanced by tartness. Very fruity, but with an earthiness. Some wood apparent from the barreling. Light body, champagnelike mouthfeel. Nice beer!

bottle share at hill farmstead’s post-3rd anniversary. pours cloudy orange-pink with a purple hue, low off-white head, some retention. dusty berries and flowers upfront and a strong minty presence, grass, moderate funk, few minerals, much more lactic than acetic - overall light acidity, nice woodsy notes. average carbonation, light body, ends minty and lightly sourish along with grass notes. enjoyed it even though mint was a bit off-putting.
