12oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours an off golden color with a very slight head. Smell has a lot of farmhouse characteristics, yeasty and malty with a lot of lemon zest. The taste is extremely crisp and refreshing. Very apparent malt backbone with a good amount of sweetness as well as lemongrass and citrus. This screams farmhouse ale. Light in body, low in carbonation, but very very drinkable.

Overall just a superbly easy to drink session beer. I could down a whole six pack of this in a hurry.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler.

A- Slightly hazy straw color in the body. White head. Retains well but is very thin throughout the drink. Some lacing.

S- Grainy malt aroma, with some fruit as well (apple, pear).

T- Light grain flavor with some fruit, and a hint of some spices.

M- Light and sweet.

O- This is simple, but so tasty. Very light flavors but they come out so well and work well with each other. The fruitiness is refreshing as well.
