Organic beer, now that would be a selling point if it wasn't already for the stylish green flask shaped bottle. By the way, we call that particular shade "Sargasso green" in the glass-blowing studio (an ugly colour for vases though).
It pours out of that bottle a nice cloudy brass hue, leaving a light small white head of foam which dissipates after a short while. The nose is somewhat intriguing, very floral, almost a bit of clover honey, along with what I can only describe as "earth tones", like a wee bit of fresh wet sod next to a stream. Still, that doesn't seem to detract from it at all. Organic indeed.
The taste again is predominantly that floral hoppiness that gives it a slight kick but isn't too overpowering. A little bit of spiciness, more herbal though than anything else, and a slight tang of citrus. The mouthfeel is not heavy as is anticipated by the aroma, but surprising light and smooth, like a velvet glove cast in iron. Please, sir, may I have another?
This is an ale that is harbouring some serious juxtapositions, very unique, it tends to catch you off guard, but in a good way. Worth trying a few times at least to pick up on all those subtle characteristics that tend to come out the closer you get to the bottom of the glass. And by the way, save those bottles, I'll use them for my own home brew, thanks.
