On tap at the brewpub.
Tart and lightly funky aroma is followed by a complex and appealing flavor.
Excellent light mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a dry finish.
Fruity and lightly tart.

Delicious and well balanced. Light funk and very slight tartness. Very solid and would drink quite a few on a hot summer day. Carbonation was just right, and you can really appreciate the character of the yeast in this brew.

Poured on tap into a stemmed wine glass.

A lemon yellow/brown opaque body presented, with some dull appearances and minimal cola stuck carbonation to the sides of the glass. Cream bright white head, slightly larger than a finger presented. Decent looker.

Great solid nose on this. Hints of dry sharp yeast and some faint lemon fruit. Large bakery white bread and even a bigger milky cream component. It literally smells like french toast. Very nice.

Palate delivers, emphasizing a fantastic feel for such a low abv brew. Creamy bodied and almost vanilla tasting. THat matching white bread and dough comes with the chewy French toast quality hinted on the nose. Quenching palate, with a nice dry bakery aftertaste to match. Slight carbonation just to make it playful but full of large depth.

A delicious easy drinking beer, very much enjoy this one.

@ Right Proper

Served in a stemmed glass, appears a slightly hazy yellow gold with a small white head. Light and rustic aromas…funky hay, peppercorns, husky grain, earthy dryness, and a little lemon. Some sulfur in the nose, but it works with the funk. Earthy grain, peppery/clovey yeast, grassy organics, and a touch of hops in the finish. Light and crisp. Nice.

Very slight aroma. Peppery with a slight tartness and bitterness. Not a favour of this style but if I'm going to drive know one Fonta Flora does better.
