I have sat on this beer for a bit and now I am going to review it. Poured into a perfect pint glass at 45 degree.
Appearance: A one finger head that is foamy and bubbly with a light off white color. The retention on the head is okay and it does leave a little lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is a pale yellow color with some amber hues. The clarity of the beer is clear with quite a bit of carbonation. Overall the appearance of the beer is average, nothing special.
Nose: A moderate fruity aroma, no alcohol aroma, and a light fresh hop. Citrus notes are the most dominate aroma, oranges, lemons zest, and a hint of grapefruit. Some fruity esters and no pine notes in the hop profile. Overall the nose is average, nothing to make it stand out.
Taste: The taste is hoppy with light citrus flavors, grassy, yeasty, musty, grapefruity, and biscuit overtones. The taste is off putting the grassy flavors dominate the palate and makes this beer a different drinking experience. Some sourness is detected with some barnyard notes. Overall the flavor profile is different.
The mouth feel of the beer is carbonated, dry, and astringent.
Overall: The body of the beer is light and the finish on the beer medium. I have drank this beer twice; age on it does not make it any better or worse. I think that these are quick construction beer and need more thought. A rustic siason fits this beer well.
