Poured from a brown 25.4 oz. bottle. This beer came out quickly, resulting in a golden color with a 2 inch head. Smell is very fruity, some yeast. Taste is of apples, berries, yeast, light hops, a bit on the tart side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipated. Light messy speckled lacing glosses around the glass. The smell starts off with some sweet lemon, gathers up some sweet floral qualities melts into tropical fruits and then allows some dry piney notes to blend. The taste was moderately sweet with an underscore of dry pine, combining and running into the aftertaste and then bleeding into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good for the style and for me. Somewhat sticky sweet piney character soaks my tongue. Overall, I see where they got the name, its definitely one that drinks like juice.

Interesting concept from Cambridge. We don't get much of this stuff in CO so looking forward to any new Cambridge beer.

L: slight haze, suggesting of bottle conditioning. Light gold/ orange hue with nice fluffy head and lacing. Higher carbonation.

S: very floral in the nose, cannot pin point the smell specifically, but smells like wildflowers were added as dry hops. a bit of citrus and something resembling jasmine in there too.

T: slight sweetness op front, a bit of tartness, and a bit of hoppy floral bitterness. very crisp and balanced. very refreshing. Slight tropic hints of citrus, and a bit of white wine character as well.

F: nice creamy mouthfeel, light/ medium body. higher carbonation helps with finish and dryness.

O: Overall an interesting saison type beer. Very refreshing and crisp. reminds me of Saison de Lees from Prennial, which uses jasmine flowers. Anyone seeking more of a floral character in their beer should seek this out. would be great on any summer afternoon.

Pours a yellow/Amber color with a thick head. Smells fantastic--much like the elder flowers used in brewing it. Taste is very refreshing, but still carries a lot of flavor. Overall, a very good summer/spring beer.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Amber colored with tawny hues. Very hazy. Thick cap of off-white head retains very well. Jagged and sticky lacing.

S: Floral and berry-like. Lavender and underripe blueberry. Lightly tart. Hops bring mild spicy and leafy tones as well as a vinous white wine dimension. Lightly musty yeast. Dough and confectioners sugar malt base.

T: Gooseberries up front with a mild tartness. Blueberry. Floral. White wine and hop spice at first hide beneath the berry-like flavors, but emerge more as the palate adjusts. Yeasty undercurrents. Doughy malt base, pinch of confectioners sugar, perhaps a hint of toast. Drying finish closes with just a bit of tartness.

M: Medium bodied. Full and creamy/silky body. Carbonation is lively, expressive, and crisp.

O: A unique and tasty brew. The body is full and a bit more sustaining than expected considering the lower abv, though still very drinkable. It isn't as dependant on yeasty fireworks as most saisons are; the yeast is actually fairly restrained here and not throwing off a ton of phenols and esters. The beer is driven mainly by the exotic Nelson-Sauvin hops and maybe even more so by the elderflower addition. The berry-like impressions are unlike anything I've come across.

This is a hazy gold brew, poured from a bomber. The head is tall,firm, and white (great lace). The aroma is fruity, musty, with a bit of sweet background spice. The taste is sweet with an expansive fruit flavor throughout (peach, apple, and apricot). The body is medium in heft, with a floral finish. Interesting, and I get the name.

Found this in the back of my fridge. Forgot to drink it. Oops. Figured I would crack it and see how it was. Crazy carbonation hence it not being the freshest beer. Think it was bottled in April. Other then the carbonation,after it settled it was still pretty damn good. Fruity aroma,subtle hop flavors with a nice golden biscuity flavor to it. Would have loved to drank this fresh. Next time I will.

Pours lightly hazy straw color. Nice white head that fades quickly. Smells of grass. Taste is nice. Light hop flavor up front with a soft Belgian yeast biscuit. This is a beer I'm really diggin for summer. My new favorite ( until tomorrow).

Pours a golden straw color with a decent sized white head, fades at a fast rate with little lacing on the glass, slight haze to it.

Smell has a nice floral aroma, strong in hops with scents of pine and cut grass, sweet malt in the background to counterbalance, not sure what elderflower smells like but it's likely in that floral bouquet.

Taste is light and refreshing throughout, hops hit right away, mostly pine and citrus, as it fades the sweetness of the malt comes through but not overly so, carbonation is quite ample but very very soft in the mouth, a very easy summer drinker.
