Notes / Commercial Description:

this might be the best thing i've had in a long, long time. kind of in love with this one.

pours clear copper, with good carbonation and a lingering head. no lacing.

very floral aroma, with a spicy bite to it. yeasty, bready notes follow, but really the floral note takes center stage.

taste is bitter mitigated by the malt and floral hops, but the mildness doesn't linger. there's almost something minty about this one, too, or something a bit cooling.

medium body overall with a drying, bitter finish.

i'm a fan. malty, well hopped, higher abv - really hits all the point for the style.

Pours brilliant gold with a 1” creamy white head that produces decent lace. Floral and malt aromas rise from the glass. Floral hops provide enough bitter accent to balance a slightly sweet malt presence. Medium body and carbonation. Very drinkable.
