Hill Farmstead Anna
December 4, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - 750ml bottle. Hazy bubbly pale gold with a decent frothy white head. Lemony/floral aroma - a little sweet but not obnoxious; simple. Taste follows, less sweet, lemon-drop tartness and really tastes like it has brett and was lightly aged in a white wine barrel - light alcohol - great stuff. Light body, astringent, mild carbonation, longish spicy tart finish. Lovely ** AND KAREN CALLED ME PEDANTIC! Let me explain ad nauseum why she is wrong ;;-))))

Pours bright gold into a willi. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Lime and funky brett aromas. Soft with tart lemons and limes upfront turning to citrus skin and pith in the lasting earthy finish.

Hill Farmstead Peleg
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, dark reddish brown pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, dark fruit, sour cherry, slight acetic note into a bit of funk, yeast, and basement notes. Taste was a mix of sour cherry, oak, bourbon into some vanilla, sour funky notes with a touch of caramel, toffee, raisin, finishing fairly tart, slightly sweet. Interesting, but not sure I’d seek it out again.

Hill Farmstead Birth of Tragedy - Akmel Nuri
Bottle split 3 ways. Black pour with a touch of mocha head. Aroma is brownie, coffee, and toffee, but the bourbon overtakes things a bit. Taste is sweetish but rich roast helps balance. Finish has a bit of liquor heat. Everyone loves these ba hf dark beers but i dint see it. Theyre good but for my palate the barrel is too strong and masks a lot of the beers character. Heavy bourbon..
