A: Very light amber; medium sized white head sticks around. Slight haze.

S: Sweet and toasty malt along with yeasty fruitiness. A slight funky edge.

T: Toasty and sweet malts, very tasty Belgiany yeast notes. Pretty dry finish.

M: Medium light body, no astringency, clean dry finish.

O: Fantastic session beer; hits all the right notes.

edit: After a further few months of drinking this beer, I feel the need to revise my rating upward. It's just an outstanding example of an old school farmhouse ale. Full of flavor and you can still walk away in a straight line after having several. A great match for almost any food. Certainly captures the spirit of beer appreciation better than the many barrel aged, 12% ABV, specially treated whatever beers, though I like a few of those too.

Served in a pint glass at the Mad Taco.

Appearance - Clear golden yellow. Huge white head. Beautiful lacing and surface foam.

Smell - Lemony bright yeasty aroma. Some hops. A little yeasty.

Taste - Hop flavor up front. Citrusy. A little soapy. Touch of sweetness. Estery and a bit of grain.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light. Well carbonated. Grainy body as the flavor drops off.

Overall - This isn't the most flavorful beer, but it's tasty and clean.

@ Prohibition Pig

Hazy blonde color under an attractive, thick, creamy head. Aromas of pale, toasty malt, dough, and light spicy, fruity yeast esters. Nice, toasted malt sweetness in the flavor along with some pale, spicy fruit. Light bodied, super crisp, and extremely drinkable. Very nice...simple, but quite enjoyable. I enjoyed everything I tried from Lost Nation and I hope to pay them a visit next time I'm up in VT.

On tap at Prohibition Pig, into a tulip.

Poured an orangey gold, with a whispy white head that retained quite nicely. Nose has some toasty wheat, light spicing, musky/funky yeast notes and some gentle fruitiness. Palate follows, lovely funk and fruit notes, sweeter and drying. Feels like this would be a nice table beer.
