Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle into a chalice, at around 45-50 degrees F. Poured a soapy, white head about an inch thick, eventually forming a dense cap. Lots of lacing. The beer is dark straw or gold with small bubbles, a bit cloudy (but the yeast was disturbed). The aroma is of citrus, grass, hay, and perhaps a little clove or spice, but I find it a bit muted. Flavors of lemongrass, resin, and citrus seem to dominate at first, supported by honey and a definite graininess. The beer finishes exceptionally dry, almost puckeringly so. Something like a hoppy saison or a really, really hoppy tripel. Carbonation is highly evident throughout. Presents as a light bodied beer, and quite refreshing.
