Fortunate enough to be in VT at the time bottles were released in early June 2015. Great beer. Wish I had more access to both Lawson's and Tree House. Idk if they're still bottling this but if you can find it, it's worth grabbing. Taste is green onion x with resinous pine. Smell and taste are nearly identical. Clear golden color. Very nice. Afternote: as it warms up it develops more of an opaque orange color.

Another one from the 3rd Annivesary Party.

Decent foamy head, hazy bright golden pure color.

Nose nice but ok, super dank resin, huge pine sap forest floor, onion, green onion.

Taste is more, pine sap, forest floor resin, earthy bitter rind and tree sap, more green onion, cheese cloth, little candy pine, sweet malt, a mess.

Mouth is med bod, sap sticky, nice carb.

One of my least fav beers from them, just not digging it.

Enjoyed at the 3rd Anniversary Party at the brewery. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into the custom Tree House wine glass a semi clear golden hue with a thin white head that faded rather quickly.

S - Aromas of earthy pine, vegetative onions, forest floor.

T - Taste is, unfortunately, similar to the nose. More of that earthy pine tree, vegetative onions. Really oniony in fact. Not digging this one bit.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, a bit lighter. Alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this collaboration just didn't do it for me. Way to much Lawson style here with all the earthy pine and vegetative onions as opposed to the great citrus characters that make up a Tree House beer.

Serving Type: On tap

Golden-tinged light amber in colour. Decent white head. Great thick curtains of lace. Nose is mango, tangerine, hints of lemon, some strawberry. Taste is similar. A bit fruity sweet, like clementines with some strawberries and peaches. Body is just a shade behind medium with a fine carbonation. Simply stellar.
