Slightly hazy with minimal head, although there is some minimal lacing that soon dissipates. The initial smell makes one think of farm-life; funky notes mix pleasingly with notes of the Earth, including grass and a touch of pine. It is wonderfully complex. The taste is impressive with the spicy yet tart flavours mingling to good effect on the tongue. It is a little lacking in maltiness, thus a little thin but hops sustain this beer. More carbonation would be of benefit. An impressive non-saison (still the best) that I would go back to.

12 oz. bottle from Edgemont Beer and Cigars. Fruity aroma of spice, grain, malt, grass and other earthly components. Not sure what fruit pops...lime, lemon, tangerine and some berry. It’s malty and acidic and so very raw in every way. I like it because it feels well made and complex. I don’t like how it feels grainy and imbalanced.
