Cloudy light straw colored body and a white head.

The first aromas gave me visions of bad Heineken: totally skunked. Damn green bottles I thought, why do brewers still use these? But luckily the skunk subsided and I was able to really enjoy this beer. Noble hops to the rescue!

On the palate grassy hops, soft bready malt, lemon peel, earthy, musty yeast character and moderate hop bitterness produce a zesty, balanced and refreshing beer with a hint of tartness and just a hint of malty sweetness.

Crisp, medium, highly carbonated body.

A perfect example of what French Farmhouse ales have to offer. Not as malty as other Biere de Gardes, more like a Belgian Saison. Would pair well with a wide range of foods, we enjoyed ours with tamales.

Pours an opaque amber with two fingers thick dense white head, a few rings of lace on the glass. Smell: upfront it's grassy, spicy, with some mineral note; mildly grainy with grape and light stone fruit sweetness, sugar cookie. Taste: nectarine, slightly tart, lemon note, grassy, snappy grain, doughy and sweet backing. Light-medium and creamy for a split second, then some heftier carbonation kicks in, pulling it to medium-plus with a fluffy feel. Finishes dry and fairly hoppy. Delicious, crooshable.
