I am in a meadow. The grass grows wildly, rising up past my knee, and I do not recall how I arrived here. I only know that I am looking for something. Someone?

There are flowers. Flowers everywhere. White, red, gold. The air is thick with their scent. To breathe is a heady, wonderful thing.

It's a girl, I'm seeking. In the distance, a cherry tree. She must be sitting there.

Then I lower the glass, and it's all gone.

This is a delightful beer with LOADS of hop scent, they must have just dryhopped with all the flowers they had, but it works--the malt balances it out pleasantly. Not very bitter. There's a bunch of alcohol in there but you'll be too focused on the flowers, and taking the next sip. To see if you can find her this time.
