I love farmhouse ales and I love Great Divide. I have high hopes:
A: Pours a rich yellow straw color. A little chill haze but mostly clear. About one finger of head that is all gone half way through. A small bit of lacing.
S: Beautiful. Some fruity notes and a slight tartness to it. I smell a blend of lemon, pineapple, and a little bit of sour apple. There's a definite breadiness to it as well.
T: Follows the nose almost exactly. It starts with the fruit, some tropical and citrus flavors, and then there tartness hits the palate, which is refreshing. And there's a yeasty, bready taste that brings it all together. And there is a slight pepper spice in the mix.
MF: Crisp and dry and oh, so refreshing! I don't taste the 7.5% ABV at all. However, its a little thicker and smoother than I expected.
O: I am a big fan. I love farmhouse ales and this one does not disappoint. A stellar beer in my opinion.
