Notes / Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Not too many low ABV beers get a "Wow!" reaction from me, but this one certainly did. Poured cold from a 750-ml bottle into a Zwanze 2018 goblet, which seemed appropriate for some reason. Clear pale golden color, with a generous long-lasting white cap that left loads of pretty lacing. Aromas and flavors I would characterize as "rustic." Grassy and herbal, with notes of yeaset and lemon as it warmed. Beautifully bitter hop character, clean and crisp on the palate, and an exquisitely dry finish. Excellent table beer and well worth the price. Best when shared with friends!

This is a love or hate beer, and I get it. Super light and dry with a lot of complex funk but on the light end not super horse blanket. But to me someone who isn't over the top with funk I really enjoyed it.

Bills itself as a farmhouse ale. This was extremely funky - my first thought was barnyard not farmhouse. Label says refrigerate 24 hours before opening, but I'm not sure I'd want to dampen the experience of the distinctive aggressive yeasts.

Pours a slightly hazy vibrant yellow-gold colour. Smells like clean, crisp, hayfield, with clight honeyed biscuit notes, and crisp. Tastes earthy, bitter, crisp, refreshing, honey, hay, and sessionable.

Chunks + sheets of white over cloudy lemon. 4
Lemon, grass, and a touch of rustic. 4
Saltines, big hit of lemon, some grass, slight white pepper, and a touch of flowers. 4.5
Dry, crisp, light. 4

Clean zippy, enough citrus and spice… does the job. And 2.9% wins. Very much a table beer, not a saison, but an exceedingly fine one. 4.5

Mostly clear, slightly antiqued gold mirror with a large white airy foam collapsing quickly to an uneven lump with some sporadic fuzzy lace and a thick clinging collar.

Smell is grass, toasted hay and crisp, bright refreshing corn with hints of grape and cracker, as well as a very faint, almost salty cheese and wood funk.

Taste starts with that funk first, almost Gose- and ocean-like, if not for hay and barnyard, then transitions to the Pils-attributes of corn and grass with a little tang and some rindy bitterness. The swallow and exhale brings back some woody almond and old hay funk. There's a hint of black olive in the finish, but overall this is a light, inoffensive drinkable ale.

Medium-light body with a big froth that quickly dissipates to a crisp fizz and semi-dry finish.

Batch #18 2015 vintage
