Pours a darker yellow with not a ton of head. Smells tart and citrusy. On the palate, there is the typical Side project tartness that gives way to a mild acidity. On the finish however, there it was...the honey! A slight kiss of honey at the end of the palate. It becomes more prevalent as it warms. Outstanding beer.

Enjoyed in the Funk Factory Geuzeria taproom, this Blend 1 had the appearance of hazy but bright apricot with a faint white ring.

Smell is peach, honeycomb, peanut, apricot, wild herbs and spiced oats.

Taste is perfectly tart peach-apricot with spiced honey funk almost like herbal raspberry graham. I mean wow.

This beer is nice and light with a mild froth and a tart, puckering semi-dry finish.
