3.5/5 rDev +14%
A: crystal-clear, amber in color with a rose-orange tinge... finger width of foam on the pour, dies out rather quick, but keeps a messy, spongy-looking collar
S: vibrant, overripe strawberry... mild fruity-floral booze... very much smells like a light rose wine cut with an extra fruit... hard candy nuance... overall, dull and hazy
T: watery, fresh-squeezed strawberry moisture... vaguely burlap-y, grassy (buckwheat) honey at the back end, lasting through the finish - at first, it tastes like it was back-sweetened or perhaps not fermented out fully... but it's not all that sweet, though perhaps would benefit from being a little... almost a lemon pith quality to the bitterness, somewhat in flavor as well; bitterness has a fresh cut grass thing going on... there's an thread of something unsavory carrying throughout, it's like sucking on a pumpkin stem mixed with licking just the outer skin and white of an underripe strawberry... that's all I got
M: pretty dang dry, flat, lacking spritz on the tongue... bit of a residual juicy film left
O: certainly a unique brew... nothing really "off" about it, aside from the complex green flavors... perhaps it's just that shock of tasting something different - it did grow on me a bit by the end... all in all, it's one of the better gluten free (barley free) beers out there
