Look: Translucent hazy gold with a healthy white head. Moderate activity.

Smell: Fresh. Notes of earthy and floral hops. Straw, Belgian sugar, lemon grass, green banana, white pepper, Belgian yeast funk, and lemon zest.

Taste: Floral hops and lemon zest on the attack. This is quickly followed by white pepper, Belgian sugar sweetness, bruised pear, more floral hops, light citrus hops, straw, green apple skin, and Belgian yeast funk.

Feel: Light to medium body. Prickly on the tongue to a smooth body and a bone dry finish. Mild bitterness. Light salinity. Soft carbonation. No alcohol present.

Overall: Fantastic. It's so light and refreshing. It develops layers and layers of flavor. It's so delicate while being so flavorful. I'm seriously blown away. World class stuff.

Growler straight from the brewery.

Pours a cloudy dark straw color with small head
Smells of citrus, grass
Tastes of mild hops, citrus with a near perfect balance

Overall a perfect farmhouse that is refreshing with perfect balance of ingredients. Citrus really shines through but you get a crisp and dry finish.
