Not a bad beer, awesome color and decent head. There is just the right amount of balance between the bitter and sweet that this beer works. The sweetness seems to be like high fructose corn syrup, maybe I am wrong. It has decent carbonation and drinks well. Got a touch ore than I expected in this one !!@

We pop the tab on a can, pouring a brew of dirty, wet straw. It holds a modest head of one finger tall white foam, and appears to be highly carbonated. The nose is wonderfully fresh of German grain, clean wheat, rye, powdered barley, and white rice. The hops to meet are grassy, with other balancing notes of dandelion, white sugar, honey over soggy cereal, heavy creamer, and baker’s yeast. The taste, too, is wonderfully fresh and malty, but keeps it light on the toes. The flavors are sweet, of biscuity pales, German Weiss, honey, lactic milkiness, flaked barley, soft grassy hops, sugary apple juice, and generous lager yeastiness. The body is light to medium, but crisp, creamy, and frothy, leaving the mouth happy, warmed, and satiated. Drinkability is wonderful.
Overall, this is a sleeper of a beer. We were a little blown away here. This is an amazing rendition of a not oft-made style from a smaller American brewery, and they nail it both stylistically and artistically. We didn’t really write a long review, but that should speak to its well-crafted simplicity and elegance. The aroma and flavor, both, showcase raw, flakey barley like none other, at least as far as freshness goes. We have a bunch of other “world class” beers lined up in the fridge, but I might honestly give one of them up if I could sip on this the rest of this summer’s night and enjoy the breeze and the hockey game.
