On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, earth, and slight fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, plum, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice plum and fruit flavors, but the smell is quite subtle for anything.

Serving type: on tap.

On tap at the Thirsty Monk (AVL).
Slighty hazy amber body with a weak head.
Mildly funky and fruity aroma; moderately floral.
Flavor. Medium-low tartness and bitterness; lightly salty. Interesting, with an unexpected slight funk.

Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey. Poured into a stemmed tulip.

A - Poured a nearly lightly hazy rich golden hue with a thin one finger white head that leaves wonderful light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of, well, the ocean and salt plums. Great fresh salt air with a sweet and sour plum thing going for it. Like taking a deep whiff from a bag of salted plums.

T - Taste is very clean. Great salty sweet going on. Wonderful salt water flavours, lightly mineral notes with a great sour and sweet plum going on. The plum works amazingly with the salt and really explodes on the pallet. Alcohol hidden very nicely.

M - Mouthfeel is great, super crisp and clean with no alcohol noticeable.

O - Overall this beer was just delicious. The salty sour sweet going on was incredible. Would love to get my hands on some bottles of this!

The beer comes in a light hazy straw yellow color.

The flavor has apricot, unripen plum, lots of wheat. There's barely any salt quality. A sweetness of honey in the middle and then a huge dense amount of lavender and perfume on the back.

Not really to style, but a good drinking brew.
