750ml, corked, caged, and it was just begging for me to take it off the shelf & back to a good home. It pours pale, cloudy gold with a thin near-white head that really doesn't hang around to party. The smell, though, makes daddy happy. It's strawberries, lemons, wheatgrass, sugar, a hint of caramel, and a whole lotta makin my mouth water. Taste is drier than the smell hinted at, with tart fruit yielding to a crisp taste and a really clean finish that just makes you want more at the very end. It has an aged cheese taste in there somewhere. The Northcoast guys have outdone themselves on this one. Mouthfeel is creamy, nicely carbonated, and just a hair thin. Drinkability is very good. The flavors balance very well & make me want more. I'd move to a farmhouse if this is what it meant!
