COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Florence (1915-1967) was our grandfathers sister, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to her and her 13 siblings. In her honor, this Belgian inspired Wheat ale is crafted from American malted barley, Organic Vermont wheat, European and American hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Soft, cloudy, and fresh, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Florence. 5% ALC/VOL 12 P Ingredients: Pale Malt; Vermont Organic Wheat; American and European Hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

La bouteille de 750mL verse un liquide blond dor, avec une petite carbonatation. Au nez, la levure est prsente, me faisant penser la levure classique de la saison belge, sucre et frache, avec des impressions de citron en finale. Au got, la levure prend galement le dessus, avec un ct plus rustique et sec que je mattend. La finale est sche avec une touche damertume terreuse qui me rappelle que la brasserie est amricaine et non Belge! En bref, une saison lamricaine qui ne se dmarque pas vraiment des autres saisons du genre. On sattend plus de la part de HF.

Kinda smells like white wine. Slightly sour light, round palate. Refreshing but fairly average.

ineedbeer (1983) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Poured from a 12/2013 vintage 750 ml bottle. Aroma is really nice with some medium light citrus notes with light tropical fruit and apricot accents. Light phenolic notes with an herbal and lemongrass character. Medium light wheat notes with hints of crackers and biscuits. Pours a slightly hazy, golden color with a medium sized, fairly thick and pillowy, white head that shows really nice retention as it slowly but steadily recedes. Moderate lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a light acidity with a balanced, medium light sweetness. Medium wheat noes with hints of crackers. Medium light citrus notes with lighter herbal phenolic notes. Some faint tropical fruit. Light mineral notes from the water. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium to medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a very nice beer. Great citrus and fruit notes with a light wheat and malt profile and lighter phenolics to balance it all out. Very easy drinking.

750ml bottle purchased at Hill Farmstead. Pours a bright golden yellow, hazy, nice carbonated bubbles and a thin carbonated head. Smells of fine champagne, white wine, light fruits. You can almost smell the sourness/tartness of the beer. Taste sour, smooth, tart flavor in the back of your mouth. Slight peachy pale fruit flavor. Lovely. Tart and full mouthfeel. Nice linger to it. Very nice.

koleminer20 (2934) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at Abus place on September 13. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a nice clear light golden yellow color with a thick white head and a good bit of lace as it falls down to a thick cap. The aroma is very wheaty up front. There is a light tropical fruit, some barnyard funkiness, and a hint of brett. It comes off a little grassy as well. The flavor is a little better. Light citrus comes in with the wheat, barnyard, fruits, and the brett. The grassiness fades a little, but its still there and prominent. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a great carbonation and a lingeringly tart dustiness on the finish. Im not much for the all out wheat character, but its a nice beer.

Bottle shared at Puzzls. Poured a delicate super pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of wet wheat, lemon, light spice and urinal pucks. Flavor is better than the aroma with sour lemon, grains, wet wheat and light pepper. Smooth body with light carbonation.
