The benchmark for the style. A marvelous summer beer - perfect for an evening with some friends in the backyard, eating sausage and cheese.
First pour shows a cloudy and hazed pale gold-yellow. The head is huge and frothing. Dense and sticky and seemingly out of control in the glass.
The aromas are lovely with strong floral and herbal notes riding on the undercurrent of funky horseblanket yeast and warm french bread. Perhaps a bit unbalanced, which stops it from deserving a higher score.
Initial tastes are herbaceous and citric. I taste fresh cut grass, lemon, some graperfruit notes and a strong hop bite. Very sharp and slightly acid in flavour. Very refreshing and clean, leading to a tart and dry finish with little aftertaste.
This is a beer you could seriously session drink - which might be dangerous (grin). A lovely and refreshing beer and one I will try to have with more regularity.
