3.78/5 rDev -1.8%
Poured clear yellow with a slight haze. Thick white head that dissapated quicky into foamy ring. Moderate carbonation.
Expected banana and clove, a bit of wheat. Floral hops.
Fruity character in the taste with a bit of lemon tang. Resiny bitterness and a dry finish.
Mouth is dry and thin with slight astringency.
Overall: A nice farmhouse ale, but the astringency knocks it out of balance. Could use a bit of hop flavor rather than just bitter. Still, pretty refreshing and quaffable. I will not have trouble drinking this six pack and would gladly accept another. would even order a pint when at the brewery.

A - Cloudy, nice head, with lots of lacing on the glass and pretty good retention.
S - Lemon, floral, mild grassy notes.
T - Lemony, touch of sourness. Mild hoppiness.
M - Medium to medium light body. A little mouth-puckering.
O - A solid ale with good qualities. An easy drinker that satisfies and refreshes. Not as strong as Great Divide's Yeti series, but still enjoyable.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Very light amber/orangy color with almost no head. Nice stone-fruit aroma (peach?) with a little yeasty funk. Taste is very similar but with added citrus and nice tartness and juicy mouthfeel. All around good beer, would recommend.

My 100th beer!! I just want to thank my liver, my kidneys, and my tongue, you guys really rock. Oh, and Jesus, of course, even though he was a wino.
Awesome that my 100th beer is a farmhouse ale, and one that tastes almost identical to the farmhouse ale at Carters in Billings MT, which was the first beer style I found myself getting into early in my beer career. In case you've never had a good farmhouse, it tastes sort of sweetly tart, mild in body and flavor but oh so refreshing. Pairs great with meals since it won't overpower much, but still strong enough to stand alone. Smell is wonderful too, intoxicating. Cheers!
