Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy gold with an explosive 4 fingers of head. They head is made up of huge, sudsy bubbles sort of like a bubble bath. The big soapy lacing clings to the glass. Very aggressive carbonation.

N: Lemon zest and bready malts along with hints of coriander and rye. The Belgian yeast and Brett are apparent.

T: The front of the palate is very soft just picking up hints of lemon zest and some sweet candy sugars. Mid-palate has rye, earth, wheat bread, notes of lemongrass and some funky Brett character. The rye and earth notes hang on in the finish. Hay and horse blanket also come forward. Overall the beer comes through very earthy.

M: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing and relatively clean. Has a ever-so-slight tartness and is extra dry.

O: Barnyard, earth and rye dominate the flavor profile. Lemon zest and hints of coriander lye beneath. Very refreshing and easy drinking albeit very funky. The 9% abv is masked extremely well.

Bottle courtesy of joshdykema, thanks again!

Pours a cloudy gold color with a huge bright white head.

Aromas are of champagne, dust, some floral notes, and some lemon citrus. Pretty nice nose.

Taste is peppery up front. Some notes of lemon zest, sugar, bready, champagne, earthy, with a bitter mineral like finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp, and clean with good body.

Overall, a pretty tasty, complex and well done take on the style. Solid brew.
