Poured from a bottle dated 2013 into the modified tulip glass.
A - Wonderfully clear, a nice honey color, the carbonation is active and supports an omnipresent cap.
S - Chamomile, orange marmalade, and orchard fruit.
T - Starts sweet honey drop, then quickly changes toward the tropics, dried pineapple, papaya and a nice
dry graininess, probably wheat?
M - Medium in body, a strong coating of the palate, lingers for quite some time.
O - A very round, rich farmhouse ale, French Ale yeast I am guessing, nicely constructed and well executed.
Cheers

A: clear; pale gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thin collar; no lacing;

S: lemon, with orange, a little floral, and a touch of spiciness in the background;

T: light coriander up front; joined quickly by tart lemon; tartness build to mid-palate, then fades toward the end; light bitterness on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; highly carbonated - tingly; lightly dry finish;

O: enjoyable, but lacking in terms of the style;
