4.6/5 rDev +17%
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Firestone Walker Proprietor's Reserve Series short stemmed tulip/snifter
Pours a hazy, shimmering light golden topped by a billowing two finger bright white head. Excellent retention, plenty of thin lacing. Wonderful nose full of floral notes, light lemon and mixed citrus, and earthy farmhouse yeast. Opens with some hay and herbal accents, light lemon, mixed citrus and floral notes. Transitions to mild pleasant yeasty general earthiness, more mixed herbal accents; finishes dry and mildly tart with mild citrus rind. Lively carbonation, light to light medium body. Wonderfully smooth and silky. An absolutely wonderfully balanced brew that is incredibly drinkable. A very worthy addition to the Proprietor's Reserve Series.

Bomber bottle w/ a 3-7-14 bottling date
Pours lightly hazed darker golden. Off white head, that leaves decent bits and irregular bars of lace.
Pleasant tropical fruit nose
More tropical fruits, including melon on the palate with light pepper.
Nicely done, highly enjoyable and well crafted. Helped wash down some BBQ in a palate cleansing and fat cutting manner.
Go get some.
