Our unfiltered Breakfast Ale is as fresh and full of flavor as a day down the shore!

This was a solid summer ale,perfect for a brunch or pjcnic. Aroma and taste were similar.wheat,malt,followed by a slight hop bitterness.wasn't extreme in any way but still had a decent amount of flavor,carbonation,and a decent feel

Bottle to pint glass.

LOOK: yellow.
AROMA is sour fruit, lemon,pine.
TASTE: also sour with wheat. Some hops in the finish, fruity.
FEEL: Pretty flat.

Not awful, but not matching expectation of beer type. A bit strong for summer and breakfast.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Dark amber with 2 inches of head and decent retention.

Nose: Faint aroma of malts, the tiniest whiff of Belgian yeast, but it's all barely noticeable behind the strong aroma of... dirt. Yes, dirt. This smells like a beer you just poured on the ground and then tried to sniff the mud you've just created.

Taste: Dirt. Not sure whether this was a bad batch or what but surely this beer wasn't intentionally designed to taste like this.

Mouthfeel: Mild carbonation. Did not detect any floating pieces of dirt on the tongue, which I guess is a good thing.

Overall: Well needless to say this was an outright drain-pour. The warmer it got the more pronounced the unpleasant earthy dirt flavor became. Maybe I need to get another bottle and compare.

I like this beer. Different from many summer beers. I like the tart and sweet taste, buy not like lemon. This is in my summer beer rotation.

I like this beer. It's light, tangy and tasty. Look is typical, golden no head really. Smells good. Taste, like I said slight tang, light, drinkable, solid carbonation, fresh. Good stuff!
