A - Hazy golden yellow with a very small head

S - Spices, citrus, bit of banana

T - Cloves, pepper, coriander, orange peel. Some tart/bitterness as it rolls back. Can just taste the alcohol after the finish.

M - Moderately carbonated. Crisp and prickly.

O - Not my favorite farmhouse, but still a great example of the style. Definitely a summer beer.
