Pours an orange hued beer with a touch of cloudiness (this is a bottle conditioned ale), with a slightly off white foam head that keeps a thin lace throughout its stay in the glass.
Delicate floral aroma (orange blossom), soft herbal spices and the faintest honey note in the back. Thin mouthfeel, actually a bit watery, and quick to leave the palate. Coriander, clove, lemon peel, wheat husks, crackers, slight peppery note. Splash of lime bitterness. Touch of peach, both in fruitiness and tartness. Thin honey sweetness. Dry, with a lot of yeast character in the finish. A bit too much as it lingers to the point of almost becoming unpleasant, the some lingering sweet floral notes help to mask this a bit.
This could be something to quaff back during the summer as it's both light and refreshing on the palate, but it does have a slightly sneaky alcohol. A nice farmhouse ale. I'd love to see more US brewers take a stab at this concept.
