4.58/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Hazy golden straw color. Big, bubbly perfectly white head. Not much lacing or retention retention.

S: Sublime. Very lemony, mixing with the bread aroma from the malt. There is some pear too I believe along with some yeast. Very refreshing. The kind of beer you pick up just to sniff. Not overly complex, just really nice.

T: Hard to live up to the smell but it comes close. Very nice. Pears, apples and lemons with bread in the middle. Aftertaste is quick and a little dry. Very clean, smooth taste. No indication of alcohol despite the 7% ABV.

M: Good carbonation, pretty light with a very clean feel.

O: Overall this is really quite nice. Not super complex, not super strong. Just nice, clean and refreshing. The fruit flavors meld together wonderfully and it's a pleasure to smell and taste. This is the first time I've tried this style and I like it. It's kinda like a bigger saison I suppose.

Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay goblet.

A - Straw gold pour, hazy with a fine white foam.

S - Lemon zest, brett, hayloft.

T - Floral citrus followed by a smooth, mild sweetness. A faint grassy flavor comes through from the hops.

M - Light with a fine carbonation, finishes dry, almost champagne-like.

A smooth refreshing beer. A unique version of the style bringing thoughts of springtime and the daffodils for which it's named.

Rare beer club beer. This is another one of those beers that make me happy to be I the club. I never would have picked this up off the shelf in a store. This a a really nice beer. Doesn't smell like much, but it really comes through on flavor perfect summer beer. Crisp but flavorful.
