Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Mora2000 on 11-21-2011

Medium strength, dry, golden ale brewed with our farmhouse yeast, and, as its name suggests, an abundance of noble, European hops. Thoroughly hoppy, yet elegant, dry, balanced, and drinkable.

750ml poured into a SN snifter

A: golden yellow with a bright white fluffy head. Great lacing and clarity.

S: Light citrus with gentle hay and grassiness. Not much aroma tho... Slight funk if you swirl and get your nose in there.

T: slight pine and a little menthol with great grain flavor. A little citrus and grapefruit bitterness. Gentle yeast character and a little lingering funk after taking a sip.

M: Nice lingering bitterness and gentle funk.

O: This is an interesting beer for sure. At this point the bottle is 6 months since bottling so aroma must have diminished but definitely a tasty refreshing beer. This is something I could drink all day during hot summer days.

Very pale yellow in color. Initial taste is lots of carbonation and slightly sour. Finish is a little sweet but still complex. Lots of grassy/funky flavor. Very nice farmhouse beer. Can't say I taste a ton of hops so this may not be marketed properly. However, it's still a great beer.
