This is a very refined beer with hints of wildflower honey and mild but addictive sour taste. Definitely a world class beer. Pots fruitful, pours beautiful with a nice light color, white head and 6.5 undetectable abv.

Served in a tulip style glass at George Keeley's.

Huge foamy, pale white head. Cloudy golden body. 4.5

Tart, lemony, earthy and sweet. Prominent yeast. 4.25

Tart, lemony, grassy and earthy. Peppery yeast throughout. 4.25

Tart but not overwhelming on the mouth. Light and easy-drinking, slightly sweet before a dry finish. 4.25

Damn good beer, although the hype may have caused me to be slightly underwhelmed.

Poured into a tulip.

Pours yellow and slightly foggy, with a superb, fluffy head and good retention. Bright pour.

Initial aromas of lemongrass and dried flowers. A little dusty smelling, and a little sweet as well.

Sharp, tangy flavor. Lemon is quite strong throughout. The initial flavor is of an old dish sponge, one that has been cleaned with a blast of lemon juice. Interesting tartness on the finish that'll give you a little Smarty-like bite in the back of your jaw. A little metallic flavor lingers between sips.

Fairly clean mouthfeel. A sugary tartness lingers for a while. Usually not my favorite flavor profile, but this was pretty interesting.

This is a nice brew, and brings a unique flavor profile. Not sure it should be wildly sought-after, but it's better than most any off-the-shelf farmhouse ales with wider distribution.
