Pours a three-finger smooth off-white head that barely fades leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color, ton of yeast settles to bottom. Yeasty/citrusy nose. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Starts tart maybe an apple flavor, hard to pin down, finish is sour. Good bottle to split with your beer partner. Pricey - $16.99 for a 1L bottle from Tully's Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

The beer poured into the glass lightly hazy golden amber with a ghost white frothy head which lasted well to lace the glass.

The aroma was floral with a light lambic acidity which came across as quite tart. The roses mentioned on the label could be detected through the acidity and a light indistiguishable spice was present.

The flavor was very lightly tart with a bready wheat character which also had a light rye presence. The flavor was uniquely tart, but only lightly so, never harsh nor overly lactic nor overly acidic. The flavor had a bit of citrus and some floral characteristics to boot. The tartness increased the complexity of the brew which did contain a very light spice, but the spice was not dicernable.

The finish was dry with lasting wheat and rye impression and a bit of light tartness which dried out further in the aftertaste to leave a bit of a husky grainy characteristic on the palate. The body was medium light with a nice carbonation level which assisted the mouthfeel to be quite creamy. Very refreshing and different, but this is not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

1 liter bottle. Thanks for nuttin folks, was trying to decide on glassware and was hoping for the reviews to assist. I guess somebody has to be the first. Bottle lists wheat and rye malt along with roses, violets, elderberry, citrus, honey, and black pepper. Put this one in a tulip or a chalice.
