12oz bottle with no freshness date to be found.
Perhaps the first totally filtered Farmhouse Ale I have ever run into, pour a clear pale golden yellow color with a sturdy two fingers of white head that show good retention. A little fruit and medicinal with a dry cracker graininess and herbal hop in the nose. Crisp and smooth with a fluffy moderate sized body. Dry and mild biscuit and cracker maltiness becomes a little grassy middle to end. Hops go a little lemon with a slight bitterness upfront. Yeast drops some vague exotic fruit and medicinal pheonls on the taste buds for good measure. Finishes very dry and refreshing.
I thought it would have lost a ton of flavor and character being filtered and such but this ended up being a pretty solid Farmhouse Ale. On the light side but it makes up for that with its superb drinkability.
