This ended up a good, clean farmhouse style. Some notes that came to the forefront were bubble gum, some clean and crisp wheat malt, and subtle peppery yeast notes. This was quite refreshing on a hot brew day, and I feel as though the mouthfeel on this really hit the spot. Excellent, amusing bottle art as well for what it's worth!

Good farmer's beer. Could be better but is still nice for a summer's day.

Crisp and malts flavor backed by some hippiness. Some sweetness and is a good drinker for summer. Pours nicely and has a nice aroma

We could try the charter. I don't know why really. The master? I think this is a solid four years ago

Pours a dark straw-golden color with a big, fizzy head of white foam that dissipates to a thin layer. No lace but some dead yeast is hanging off the the glass half way down.
Smell is funky, a bit sour and some malt.
Taste is malt, grass, funk, yeast, saltines. Well balanced.
Medium bodied, not harsh, refreshing on a hot summer day. Clean finish.
