Bottle. Cloudy burnt orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is bright zesty and funky with a deep malt backbone. Taste is quite tart up front, very slight sweetness and a dry finish. Really flavourful, complex, well balanced. beskid (927) - GERMANY - JUL 13, 2018

750ml bottle shared with brother and Vanessa, thanks Guillaume for the share. Aroma: big brett nose, cherries, alcohol, maybe a touch of caramel and apples as well. App: clear mahogany with orange tint, no head. Taste and palate: light to medium body, medium sweetness well integrated with the moderate but not lasting for a long time acidity. Overall: wow. This is really good. This is well made. I love the perfect blend of the acidity with the sweetness. It's moderately acidified but at the same time so gentle. Excellent! skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
750ml bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ ruby red hue, darkish brown, slight copper color. nice white fluffy head and a little lacing.
S~ some orange and lemon/lime tartness followed by lots of oak.
T~ wow! grapes and black cherrys up front, then comes the orange, grapefruit, lemon/lime tartness. followed by a lot of oak just like the on the nose. pretty sour all the way through. this has crazy complexity and is still very well balanced.
M~ heres where the honey comes into play, smooth but rather thick. perfectly carbonated and slightly dry from the tartness.
O~ yup... amazing! why did i ever doubt it? well probably because Biere De Mars usually isn’t my go to style but this definitely stands out from everyone i’ve ever had. a little of their saison style comes through as well, which i find in some of their beers like Abner and Wheat Is The New Hops. this is exactly what i love about HF. their well water also might have something to do with their outstanding brews. next time i go up there i’m totally asking them to fill a growler with their water haha.
