4.48/5  rDev +6.9%

(4.0) A: Attractive cloudy copper with a billowing and bubbly marshmallow-like head. Very good retention and patches of foam cling to the glass as this recedes.

(4.5) S: Incredible. Banana, lemon, grapefruit, honey, cloves, pepper, belgian yeast, and barnyard elements including dry grasses and woodchips. Wonderful floral notes come across well. A varied and complex aroma.

(4.5) T: Dry grasses, honey, tropical and citrus fruits, peppery cracker, cloves, and leaning towards herbal rather than floral elements. Wide assortment of flavours that work superbly together. Very good balance with just enough dry, bitter, and sweet characteristics.

(4.5) M: Medium bodied with moderate/spritzy carbonation (both are bang on). Texture is slightly oily with some chewy character.

(4.5) D: Superb farmhouse and a must try for fans of the style. Very good complexity and superb balance are both qualities that stand out for me.

4.3/5  rDev +2.6%

Pours a light pale gold, plenty of white frothy head, good retention and leaves a nice lingering film and great lace. Have some of the yeast suspended and on the bottle of the glass, but most was enjoyed separately.

Beer has a fresh yeasty aroma. Piney and grassy notes, light hops. Some mild banana. Light and fresh, but very interesting.

Taste is light, yeast is present. malt comes through. Shows a nice tartness and really good complexity. Floral aspect as well. The tartness becomes more dry toward the end, finish is dry, green apple.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, carbonate is medium and the beer is crisp and refreshing. Quite nice. Great drinkability and really pleasing on the palate.

Really good classic beer. Very nice balanced profile, complex and tart flavour. Great stuff, and a classic of this style. Lovely.
