Poured from bottle into chalice glass, from notes. The look of this beer is perfect, pleasant golden colour and amazing retention right to the end a foamy cap and excellent lacing.

Smell is quite subtle, yeasty with soft fruit notes, crisp and dry mineral notes, really soft and balanced.

Taste is pretty amazing, a perfect balance of bready malt, solid amount of citrusy hops and a bit yeast influence, soft florals, perfect complexity, and so much integrated flavour. Pleasant light hay notes, bready with soft mineral punctuations, a decent amount of hops coming through as well which is nice.

Mouthfeel has a moderate body, appropriate carbonation, nicely dry on finish. Very easy to drink, satisfying amount of body and great long finish.

Wonderful beer. Seek it out. Exceptionally well-balanced
