Pours a chill-hazed apricot with 3 fingers of beige head. Average head retention & lacing
S: Phenols & orchard fruit
T: Green apples, lemons & some dryness up front. A bit of a dirty phenol taste as this warms, along with hints of boozey grainyness with a touch of dry cider. Finishes with some breadyness & a bit of coarseness, has some real hefe-like quality to it
MF: Light/medium bodied with fairly assertive carbonation
Drinks alright, these are flavors that aren't in my wheel house, but cuts the thirst fairly easy. I'm guessing this will go down easy once it gets hot. This is a taste of history here, so that makes it cool in its own right
Serving type: can

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a light orange body with a touch of hazy and sea of microbubbles supporting a thin white ring of foam.
S- The light hint of bread crust is almost caramel in character with a green herbal hint in the finish but overall very clean.
T- There is a soft cider note to the faint whole wheat bread crust that finishes with just a touch of sweetness and a green herbal candy flavor lingers for a moment after each sip. As the beer opens it takes on a watery taste.
M- The slight slippery texture on the tongue is scrubbed by the big fizz and that cuts the sweetness and the soft flavor aswell.
O- This is a very mild flavor beer that is clean but not much character. There were some slight stale qualities to the bready flavor but they were hard to pull out for sure.
