3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch 1 - What a difference a year makes! I remember trying this a year ago and being unimpressed. I imagine part of that is my palate changing, but am sure that the wild yeast has gone to work and improved this beer quite a bit.
Pours out a beautiful slightly hazy golden yellow with a pillowy, frothy white head.
Nose is impressive, lots of brett, some lemon zest, a bit of pepper, floral yeast, and a bit of earth. Feel is excellent, light, crisp, dry, frothy.
Taste follows the nose - complex, earthy, a touch of lemon, and a bit of malt.
Superb. Nice bottle, clean label. Misty, rosy amber. Aged cherry pie tones in the nose and flavor. Pickled peach notes. Interesting sourness. Thanks to Jme. sjogro (4999) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
From bottle at kermis’ b-day tasting at Kwartje. Hazy golden with white head. Sweet malts, loads of white grapes, apricot, white raisans, grass, lemon, flower petals, almond shavings, whatnot, big tartness. Moderate sweet, bitter and light sour. Over medium body, slick and soft carbonation. mariuspoenari (3175) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Sampled at Chris' birthday share. Semi-hazy golden pour with a white head. Notes of oak, brett, citrus, lime, hay, stone fruit, light white grapes, light caramel, light spices, other fruit. Beautifully balanced, light and easy to drink. Svartvit (1005) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle shared at Kermis birthday tasting. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Candied lemon, peach, oak, funk, hay. There's a lovely brightness to this, crisp and juicy all at once. Lovely beer, so balanced, thanks Marius. Maakun (6710) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle shared at kermis' birthday, huge thanks to mariuspoenari!! Hazy light golden with short lasting white head. Some lemon, yoghurt, sweet white grapes, funk, spicy yeast, apricot, pomelo, soft grains, starfruits, gooseberries. Very fruity, light herbs and grains but here the yeast and barrel really shine. Medium sweet and sour and light bitter. Bit over medium bodied with soft spritzy carbonation. Absolutely lovely lovely stuff.

From notes. Enjoyed at a share up at Huffman Lake with some good dudes the weekend of September 30 through October 01. 750 mL bottle from the November 2016 release. The pour is a lighter golden orange, relatively clear, with a nice thick cap of white head that falls down to a thin ring with a little lace left behind it. The aroma is good. There is a light tart wheat and a hint of funk. A light citrus zest follows it up with a bit of a funky barnyard going on. This is pretty damn good. There is a delicateness to it, but it’s got the distinct Hill Farmstead nose. The flavor is even better. The tartness on the wheat works well with the yeast and light funk. There is a great citrus to it and a light vinousness that I really like. The mouth feel is lighter medium bodied with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly tart wheat and yeastiness. This is a damn good beverage. 8 4 9 4 16 Theydon_Bois (21421) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017

Hazy blond color. Sour beer with nice lemon character, strong acidity, hint of acetic acid, balance and enough complexity.
Very good (not worth the price point though).
750ml bottle @ Alex's. Bottled on 2016-11Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
Pours a very hazy golden colour with a small white head. Nose is lightly funky, with hints of fruit. Flavour is fruity and funky brett of a moderate amount with an overall sour aspect. It's clean easy, smooth drinking, that's quite refreshing.
Bottle - Nice funky notes, oak and lemon. Clearish pale yellow gold and a decent white head. Soured lemon, nice funk and a clean finish. Well balanced and nice.
