So is this what Texas tastes like? I’m wondering what specifically, if anything, the farmhouse yeast strain brings to the beer itself. To be honest I can’t speak to the differences—it’s been so long, and I’ve had this so many times without even realizing that they switched over to farmhouse yeast. (Plus my old review is really, really lame. Cut me some slack—I was just getting started.)

This pours a orange-straw color with great foaming. There’s a light rye spice to this with an orange-citrus hop profile. The flavor carries that peppery rye spice along with a floral orange blossom and a delicately sweet malt profile. I enjoyed this and don’t get a chance to have it that often anymore.
