Bottle from Dad. No bottle date but worried I let this sit around for too long. Oh well. Pours a light copper/dark gold color with big fast creamy frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Aroma of earthy yeast and hop, orange, pine, dirt, hay. Flavor is earthy yeast, straw, and maybe some stale hops. Probably let this sit a little long but not bad. Yeasty farmhouse funk. Easy drinking and plenty of carbonation.

750ml bomber poured into a snifter. The pour was pale golden and slightly cloudy. A 1-inch head emerged and retained, with pleny of thick lacing and an average amount of carbonation. The nose was grassy and hoppy.

I like this one. Very well-balanced with just the right amount of malt cut by the hoppy goodness at the forefront. It finished with notes of spice and yeast. Complex but not pretentious. I'll certainly have another. Well done, Perennial.

a delightful little beer here, a clever take on an underwhelming Americanized style. this pours like champagne, clear light yellow and very brightly carbonated. its got a semisweet nose, with touches of honey and clover meadow cascading my senses. Belgian yeast more like a witbier than a pale, and just the right amount of hops to be sassy without being bold or brash. the taste is exactly as I described the nose, with some almost wild yeast elements creeping in, and more of the honey flavor without the sugar on the finish, fully fermented by what appears to be a very active and powerful strain of Belgian yeast. the feel is a little out of place, carbonated like a brut and finishing dry, its unexpectedly light in that way, and almost rushes me through the flavor journey. its super light and drinkable, especially at under 6% abv, but I would have liked the feel to be just a bit more relaxed. still, its just right for summer drinking, and is a great introduction to perennial ales for me. I will absolutely look forward to drinking more of their stuff and visiting their brewery my next pass through the gateway city.
