This one pours a light yellow-ish color, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

This smells like pear, grassiness, lemon, stonefruit, hay, and very light stinky funk.

Like all Suarez beers, this is very subtle and drinkable, and an expression of complex simplicity. It's inviting, making you want to just drink a ton of it, because you can. But it also allows you to look deeper, as there's a surprising amount going on here- pear, green apple, grassy hops and grassy funk, some hay, apricots, and a bucolic light funk.

This is light bodied, kind of like drinking air, with a good level of carbonation.

Dan Suarez is really a wizard. This brewery is making the most exciting beer in NYS at the moment.

First Suarez family beer.

Blend #5

yellow body with egg shell white head.

Smells / tastes of dry oak, lemon, pineapple, and white wine.

Mouthfeel is very nice. Light and crisp. Semidry finish.

Overall: This reminds me alot of Hill Farmstead Flora. This beer easily exceeded expectations.

7/17 edition (Blend #3). Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear pale golden pour with several fingers of fluffy white head. Great retention/lacing.

S: Tart and fruity... a bit of funk.

T/F: Light grains and tart fruit with some sweetness making its way through. Lemon citrus, oak, and chardonnay... light funk... green apple peel, and faint vanilla. A mineral quality towards the finish. Light bodied... super drinkable and with delicate carbonation.

O: An outstanding and super drinkable brew... and at 4.3% it's good for just about any occasion. Complex and delicious.

The beer comes in a medium gold color with a medium haze.

The aroma offers musty earthy ponds, grass, hints of sweet citrus rind.

The flavor follows with light acidity of Meyer lemon, a musty more touches of light funk, a wonderful floral mushroomy quality comes through with a light crackery and a hint of oak drying. Bright and lively carbonation drives the beer through the palate.

Pours a milky yellow hue with a hazy clarity. Nose expresses bright citrus notes, brine and tropical fruit. Taste is pleasant - malt bill is light and in the forefront. Mouthfeel is light in body with a mild, even carbonation and a kiss of acidity. Overall, a pleasant summer beer. Quite tasty and refreshing at 4.3%. Nice job.

Hazy blonde with white film. 4
Lemon peel, chalk, white balsamic, + pineapple. 4
Sweet grain, tart papaya, golden wood-aged vinegar, and an almost anejo rum thread of vanilla to end, plus some hay. 4.5
Halfway to medium, crisp, medium. 4

Supremely balanced and nuanced, natch. Suggestions of either dry hops or some fruity esters. Sourness is sooo gentle. Someone else wrote dandelions, I could see that. Deserves as much attention as you want to give it. Up to Suarez standards. 4.25

750 mL bottle. Pours a clear golden. Smells of soft oak, grain, lemon acidity, and a little bit of grape fruitiness, like a very fruity white wine. Tastes of grain throughout. Lightly tart, again with a touch of lemon and a white wine fruit flavor. Oak permeates and softens the grainy profile. Back end is mineral, almost salty at its peak. Light and crisp. Much more textured than the standard Suarez profile. Delicious.
