COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand - the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants Long ago led to the vision of what lies before you. After many months of conditioning with our resident microflora in barrels that formerly held our Mimosa, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed. Ingredients: American and European malts, American and New Zealand hops, Yeast, Brettanomyces, and our well water.

Thanks Brennan for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing moderately filtered orange with clean white foam lacing. The nose shows tart notes of apricot and light peach with light acetic notes. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Very lightly tart with flavors of white wine with a white wine bitterness.

haukur (1928) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 11, 2017
Light brown with a small head. Almost exactly like the first batch of Nelson Sauvignon from Mikkeller. There is brett in the nose, dry oak, hints of sauvignon blanc, got that melon wine notes. Taste has slight sour wine notes, loads of Nelson, finish is more bitter than expected, hop character is obvious, more sauvignon blanc notes, almost velvet like. Excellent

As with most HF beers Ive had, nothing that hits you over the head, just wins you over with its expert execution. This yellow sour is equal parts citrusy hops and oaky barnyard funk. Light grass, goes down easy but leaves a lasting impression. Betwween 4.3-4.4 on this one.
