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.

Huge, huge thanks to Evan for this one. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Slow gusher as I pop the cap. Nothing big, but have a glass at the ready. Pour yields a deep peach-colored brew with a nice two-finger white head. Good retention and plenty of lacing as it goes down. Thin cap throughout. The initial nose provides a good dose of honeydew alongside tropical fruit. Mild funk and white-wine character in the background. Touch of citrus rind and very light straw. Flavor is incredible. Absolutely fantastic. Notes of melon and white wine overlay a very light acidity. Just a touch of oak in the background as well as some mild underlying Brett. Body is light with a mild underlying bitterness. Acidity is quite light and is more along the lines of a mild citrus character rather than straight lactic acid. Theres a touch of creaminess in the background. Perhaps not creamy, but just a bit of wheat character. Overall, on the level with the best Hill Farmstead beers. Phenomenal, to say the least. Can we officially name Hill Farmstead the best brewery in the world?

klm1 (1301) - Bled, SLOVENIA - FEB 24, 2017
Sample from [email protected]: pours pale golden haze with tiny unstable foamy off-white head. Aroma-flavors: intense hop profile with notes of tropical fruits like papaye, mango, pineapple, some citruses etc., hint of hrape in the background, slightly tart mouthfeel, dry finish. Body is moderate, texture soft, carbonation is medium.

sebletitje (9645) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2017
Bouteille 37.5cl via trade, bottled 2015-10-10. De couleur orange lger, col blanc lger et crmeux. Arme au nez fin de barrique laissant de fines effluves de brett et un rappel de vin blanc type Sauternes et Sauvignon. Houblonn vert perce en rtro-nasal avec un accord herbac. Palais est lger sur un profil offrant des notes de funk coupls la barrique, ici une impression de vin blanc. Fini est finemetn poudreux, grains, et subtilement poivr. Note verte houblonn, avec un retrait herbac, impression de groseille maquereau, raisin blanc. Le tout laisse un fini tirant sur le houblonnage cru qui percute bien avec laspect funk, barrique de vin blanc et un fini sur une lgre scheresse de chne.

haukur (1870) - 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

slowrunner77 (11041) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2017
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.
