Pour is pale golden yellow with a ton of tight white fluffy head. Nose has a good bit of grain up front with a musky bret and then strong citrusy lemon. Taste is very similar, lots of nice grains, a bit of dusty brett but not quite as musky, with a nice lemon kiss and a good bit of farmhouse yeast to it. Moderately carbonated and a dry finish with some prickly action on the back.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is pale yellow with a half inch of white head. Aromas of hay, brettanomyces, earth, grain, lemon. Herbal flavor with the aforementioned attributes. Light in body and pretty easy drinking. Nothing too exciting here, but a solid beer.
