Backlog form Festival of Farmhouse Ales 2016. Hazy orangey-golden with a medium white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is pine/cedar forward with citrus, floral/lemon notes and peppery notes. Taste is of spruce/cedar but also pine, juniper berries, citrus, floral notes and mild bitterness. Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Moderely dry finish with mild sprucy notes. Very well balanced considering the ingredients. Flavorful but never cloying. It’s even somewhat refreshing. Good beer.

jredmond (8441) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Bottles poured at CBC Boston 2016 with Andrew and Brendan. This definitely stood out as one of the more memorable, unique offerings of the entire festival. Pours a hazy amber body with thick white lacing. Great balance on the palate with a bizarre amalgamation of flavors somehow not really clashing with one another - notes of cedar, pepper, tomato and garlic knots.

ClarkVV (6821) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Bottled 6/22/16, drunk 9/16/16, shared by Nelson.
Soft-toned, auburn-copper shows a very gentle haze and an off-white/beige head atop that is small, but fairly dense and showing moderate to strong retention.
Cedar is front-and-center, at least from amongst the three adjuncts here. Though even it is very tastefully done, with a spicy wood character that in no way overpowers the soft, lightly bready, well-attenuated malts. Poignant brushstrokes of juniper add a fruity-tartness, as the pine tips add zero astringency and give it a green, spicy, vegetal (the good vegetal) character. It all works well together, and in concert with the mildly-tart yeast, adding bright, fruity, lightly tart and pleasingly spicy aromatics, with a soft, mineral water-like character from Hill Farmstead. No alcohol or flaw.
Soft, spicy, fruity, but just very even for lack of a better word. There’s fruitiness and gentle acidity from the juniper, and the cedar adds mostly flavor (very little/no tannin) and somehow the pine adds no astringency. Easily the best treatment I’ve ever had of pine in a beer, which is not an easy ingredient to balance. Tight carbonation and a substantial body, yet nicely attenuated, with lightly bready malts, hints of caramel and light honey. Woody, spicy and lightly tart notes linger wonderfully on the end in a great balance, with a lip-smacking mint-like character in there as well.
