Thanks to bluebetty for this one.

Slightly clouded honey-straw with a large, feathery white head that drops fairly promptly to a slight ring. Strong bead.

Nice balance of tart and sweet, with green apple, lime and grapefruit squared against banana and pear esters. Decent amount of grassy funk and floral perfume. Clean and refreshing.

A touch sourer. Pithy, rindy, citrus tartness with plenty of spicy phenols and fruity esters.

Pretty light mouthfeel supported by spritzy and busy carbonation. Building astringency on the finish is a bit offputting.

Good stuff. Like Punk Monk, this manages to straddle a bunch of styles very nicely without veering into Frankenstein territory.

A-Hazy pale golden yellow hue which leaves a two finger head and sporadic lacing.

S-Barnyard funk,lemon zest,spices and lemony herbal hops.

T-lemon Sherbet,orange rind,mandarins and finished with a herbal lemon hoppy dryness.

M-Very light bodied,sessionable and finishes nice and dry.

O-I like this drop and would love to sample it on tap as id think it would grow another leg,would buy again cheers.

Pours a massive pillowy head, medium sized bubbles. Straw beige colour. Very carbonated.

Aromas of yeast, citrus. Very hefe.

Taste is again hefe to start with, but more yeast / sour flavours emerge, with some hints of other fruits, pineapple maybe. Some sherbert fizz as well.

Mouthfeel is very carbonated and refreshing.

Good offering from Murrays.

Thanks to MrKennedy for gifting me the bottle.

Pours a white lemon colour. Massive amounts of initial head recede to not all that much.

Initially this beer just makes me think hefeweizen. Smell is all estery wheat and crackers. Then more complex aromas emerge. Lemon and yeast. Almost a funky garden lambic-like note. Something like coriander. Peachy and appley perfume.

Taste is more of these peachey and appley and yeasty and lemony and mangoey flavours with a bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is quite good, feels like mineral water with massive amounts of carbonation and thinnish body.

This is a tasty and complex offering.

Slightly hazy pale golden colour with a small but fluffy white head. Good head retention.

Bright citrus aroma with notes of stonefruit. Some light tartness and peppery phenolic.

Very light malt with some wonderful fruity hop notes. Moderate esters and some phenols. Really nice and easy drinking.

Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Nice.

A very nice take on the farmhouse ale. Without being slavishly similar to any particular style it hits lots of great notes and at a great price too.
