Bottle shared courtesy of Josh.

Poured a medium yellow color with a small sized white head. Lots of suspended floaters. Aromas of floralness, a bar of soap, minty, and bready. Tastes of herbalness, green tea, soap, and floral. To sum this one up - different.

Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a huge foamy off-white head. Aroma consists of citrus peel, grapefruit and flowers. There is a nice malty balance to the citrus peel/ fruit presence. Very quaffable and sweet with a smooth, hoppy floral finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from a 375mL bottle into a Hennepin flute. Jesus! As soon as I cracked it open the bottle started spewing foam and wouldn't stop. I think I lost about a third of the bottle.

Appearance - Cloudy and amber in color with a speckled tan head that starts off huge and slowly settles down to about a finger. Chunky, with a lot of sediment.

Smell - Lavender, violets, lemon zest.

Taste - Gentle and sweet, balanced by herbal zestiness.

Mouthfeel - Soft and creamy. This could be because of the aforementioned spewing.

Drinkability - Not something I really want to drink much of.

a light fruit refreshing taste perfect for refreshing yourself and not getting wasted. would be great during a summer time day. the taste is super light and fruity, the color is light and the bottle/packaging is cool looking. i would recommend this beer big time, if you can find it.

750 mL

A: snifter. golden yellow color with a solid white head. decent retention, faint lacing. tons of sediment.

S: tons of citrus and berries. very yeasty. some slight sour notes as well.

T: very smooth flavors, no sours at all which was rather shocking from the aroma. definitely some spices thrown in this. almost tastes like how some flowers smell, like lilies. some citrus but very faint.

M: smooth and mellow. not as crisp as I thought it would be. high carbonation level, but still smooth.

D: very drinkable, but the big bottle can get old after a while. A good beer to share, but a full one is a little tiring.
