Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The pour is a beautiful clear gold with cascading bubbles rushing up the sides of the glass. The head is huge, white, and billowy and lasts a decent while, leaving behind some nice lacing. The nose is a pleasant mix of earthy and floral aromas. Herbs, rose petals, yeast, wheat, and lemons all contribute.
The beer is medium-bodied, has a good firm feel, and a sharp, refreshing, somewhat complex flavor. Up front, the flavor is slightly sweet, malty, and fruity; very much like a tripel. Then, at mid-palate herbal notes take over and the beer becomes more pilsner-like. The finish is moderately dry and the beer overall is easy-drinking and refreshing.
Overall, a very good representative of the style. My only gripe is that the herbal peppery component at mid-palate is perhaps a bit too strong and disrupts the balance of the beer. Still, fans of traditional Farmhouse Ales should not pass this up if they see it. It's a winner.
