It's light and refreshing, but the taste is rather plain

Fruity and sweet aroma, carbonated mouthfeel (slightly to much). Somewhat woody with little hints of spices. Fairly light beer.

Pours a light, hazy, straw yellow. Maybe not quite as hazy as expected. Smell is faint and subtly earthy. Taste is relatively plain. Nothing really stands out about it, maybe a touch grassy, maybe a touch biscuity or yeasty, but really quite simple and plain overall.

I've had many better farmhouse ales.

A- Pours a little bit cloudy orange to golden. Very efferfescent. Large soda like bubbles formed a bit of head that dies off quickly. I'm out of glasses so this is in a wine glass which might negatively affect the head.

S- Yeasty. Lemon and honeysuckle.

T- Lots of yeast flavors- banana, fruit leather. A bit of zesty hops in the back of the mouth. Maybe a bit of tea. Sweet.

M- Bubbly and carbonated almost like champagne. A little syrupy.

O- It's decent. Maybe a little overly yeast flavored.
