Sampled on tap at Cook's Lobster in Bailey, Maine.
Chilled hazed golden colored brew with bright white head. Great retention and lacing. Lemony aroma
Great mix here with the lemon and orange taking center stage. Some cloves and grassiness bringing up the rear. Clean and easy drinking. This one had just enough carbonation to make it go down smooth and easy. Great to accompany a mix of fresh seafood.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
