Poured from corked bottle into Chimay chalice.
Loud cork pop...bubbles were racing for the neck.
Aroma of pear, light sweet malt, hay, white pepper.
Heavy carbonation robust mouthfeel.
Flavors of sweet malt, citrus zest, lemon grass, lemon zinger tea, amber honey. The big carbonation fills the mouth with sweetness and zest. I'll give it 5 minutes...
OK...head remains, carbonation is still active. Aromas include baked bread, flowery perfume, lavender, citrus. Flavors include field herbs, tea, honey, lemon zest. As a farmhouse ale I find this very tasty, refreshing and satisfying. I'm torn on how high to rate this as I find few flaws except perhaps a slight soapy water note, or some odd herbs, an a tiny mouth puckering dry-bitter finish. Full bodied with sweet amber malts, light herbs, honeydew melon juice, powdered sugar. It's complex and pleasant...reminds me a bit of the Achel yeast. The field workers of yore would have been fortunate to have such a brew.

4.24/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
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.
