Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #49 (Feb 2011):
Not a beer style ventured into by many American brewers. A crisp-looking ale, clear brassy color with a tight, tiny-bubbled lacing. Candied fruit, white chocolate, shortbread, mild spice and wildflowers blow all expectations out of the water ... a godly aroma. Dried malt character blankets the palate, a bit biscuity but more of a dried grass flavor. Fruitiness abounds with hints of pear cider, baked apples and golden raisins, with a hint of alcohol within. Bubblegum? Herbal hop flavor and a small measure of bitterness checks any sweetness that may have lingered. Super tasty, hunt this beer down and get a semi-stinky cheese to throw it at.

On Tap @ Bukowski's Tavern.
A- Excellent head retention, lacing sticks all the way down the glass. Clear deep semi-dark copper color.
S- Baked apple, toasted dark bread ... hint of alcohol and spice.
T&M- Smooth and creamy, nice rounded malty body of medium size. Super malty, not sweet but balanced. Toasted, bready and fruity. Light hopping. Yeast twang, more toasted malt ... finishes slightly sweet.
D- Very tasty, easy to drink. Lovely mouthfeel, lots of malt and old world beer character.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint. Best by 9/25/14 (about 2 months from today's date).
A: Translucent medium amber body, tight cream colored head. Fades quickly to a lacey top.
S: Big tropical fruitiness and interesting hops. Certain sweetness and caramel aroma.
T: Balance of caramel malt and light yeast flavors. There is an assertive bitterness, but it Somehow finishes very clean and refreshing.
M: Surprisingly dry and clean on the finish. This is not a heavy beer on the palate.
O: Some big flavor but easy to drink. I'm not hugely into this mashup of hoppy/amber/farmhouse. Luckily they don't take either of those elements too far and end up with something pretty good.
