look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful golden straw color with fine cascading bubbles into a slight and deliberate froth.
Aromas of summer flowers, green tea, candied lemon and lime peels, dried lavender, orange oil, spearmint and powdered brown sugar.
Flavors of orange starburst, tea leaves, coriander, lemon verbena, dried white flowers, vanilla simple syrup and dandelion.
What a mouth feel! More like a fine sparkling wine than beer. A wine nerds offering for sure.
Pair this with any grilled fish, lemon pepper chicken and veggies... or a day by the pool with good friends.
One of the better beers I have had in the last year. Memorable, which is saying a lot for me.

Pours the color of golden straw with a bubbly white head. Loads of carbonation, as the bubbles just keep coming. The smell may be my favorite thing about this beer. Yeast, grape, a bit of wood and brett. Light mouth with a crisp fizz. At first taste, I wasn’t terribly impressed. But as it warms - and I mean really warms - the flavor really pops.
