look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
clean honey yellow pour with 2 fingers foamy white head and nice lacing. smells of fruits (orange, grapes), cinnamon, nutmeg, jasmine. very floral odors. the taste is very floral up front (again, jasmine) with a mild citrus rind bitterness up front, and a sweet citrus/floral tea-like backbone. it is light bodied with a medium carbonation.
this is a pretty solid beer and very unique. never had a beer this floral. i think they could try adding a heavier malt backbone to balance it out a bit, but this doing the job on a rainy spring day AS IS!

Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
