This beer is incredible. So complex but so subtle at the same time. Nothing is in your face but there is a wonderful tart start with sweet honey and a gritty light grain followed with a complex mix of farmyard Brett flavors that are layered but not at all offensive or overwhelming.

Had on tap at the Toronado. Lucked out!

Pours amazing. Lacing and a gold white color. Delicate and sublime. Rolling tartness. Some peach notes. Wet hay. Delicious.

(On tap at Zwanze Day event at Monk's... served in a shaker pint)

Poured with a fat cap of foam; cloudy, yellow hue to the juice... Funky-tart; sour-melon essence. Sugar-cookie malty, but light and crisp. Grassy bitterness; lightly-spicy background note... Fragrant and fantastically flavorful - glad I happened to be in the right place at the right time to try this. Now I want more.

Had this on draft at Tria in Philadelphia. Pour was into a 10oz. tulip. Not much head, and doesn’t last long. Only a bit of lacing. A lovely cloudy golden color. Nose is slightly sweet, with a touch of funk and citrus. Taste is lovely and refreshing, with a wildflower and citrus mix and a mild tartness. Pretty sharply carbonated, which adds to the overall refreshing nature of this beer. Overall a great brew. Glad I found it here in Philly!

Beer brewed with wildflower honey. Solid balanced taste with hints of carbonation. This beer is unfiltered so pours with a cloudy hue which is totally fine for drinking.
