My local tap room had this on tap. I had been wanting to try this for a while and decided it was a good time to give this a go.

A/a golden hazy brew in a chalice was placed in front of me looking very appealing. S/A mixture of floral scents, maybe raisin, I think sugar, dough notes with a faint smell of hops. T/The first taste to hit me was the floral notes that was present in the smell followed by a bread taste with a hint of sweetness. M/Good amount of carbonation and very light beer. O/This being my first "true quad" and not being very versed in this style of brew I found it very enjoying. My only dislike was the amount of floral notes in the taste but it was not too distracting. I found this light, crisp, beer very drinkable. I am happy to have had this and would probably order this again in the warmer months.
