I notice thee is a larger beer by the same name wich is 7.5%ABV and is an amber,this is considered a blond.Poured into a large tulip glass a hazed lemon tinged lighter golden with a nice looking large white fluffy crown atop.Aromas of barnyard and cork,there is some lemon oil that comes thru as well.Tastes of pilsner malt that is lightly toasted along with mild cheese and chalk,this is incredibly dry,there is some leafy hops in the finish.Hmm this is a country ale in the Biere de Garde category in my opinon,it's one of the dryest beers I have had...no joke.

Pours a very large head, fills close to half the glass, you can hear it sizzle off from a distance, as if the glass was a frying pan, so hard to gauge retention since this is so weird, slightly off white color, close to zero lacing. More filmy than cloudy, translucent rather than muddied by sediment, the liquid is almost wall-to-wall hyperactive bubbles, a veritable storm, light orange rust water to yellow in hue. The nose is fairly bold, spotlights crackers, pretzels, salt, country bread and pulped lemons, has a floral dimension as well but does not consistently shine, cardamom, a few used peach pits, overall what it smells like is a walk in the fall countryside. Full-bodied, its dryness counters the creaminess the carbonation naturally strives for. Bolder lemon citrus here and the clove and anise spice comes into sharper focus. Caraway and cardamom still in support. You get a fuller sense of the peach and apricot fruit once it warms. The salty edge takes on a more metallic character here. There is a strong aftertaste of earth, metal and leafiness. Most intriguing in that it presents the components subtly while as a whole it is more of a “one big statement” kind of beer. Interesting and worth seeking out.
