3.33/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Hazy reddish-brown, with a tall, dense white head, with excellent retention. Lacing rings the glass walls, resembling a baroque circlet. Moderate streams of carbonation drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: Complex aroma of grass, burnt caramel, apple rind, coriander, and pepper.

Taste: Opens with a mildly tart note, soon followed by some earthy wheat, caramel, and then coriander and pepper. As the taste progresses, the pepper and modest apple cider vinegar-like sourness increase, along with bitter apple. Finishes with a lingering, mildly rustic note that somehow seems dusty and earthy, with subdued herbal hops and lingering, mild pepper.

Mouth feel: Smooth, fairly full, with zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: An interesting creation, very understated compared to its Belgian antecedents. It might offer a novice a mild introduction to the Farmhouse style.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom-embossed brown glass long neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager Sensory glass.
