Beer pours deep orange with a very small off white head. Smells like black tea with some sweet floral presence. Tastes just as the nose let's on....tea upfront that mellows out very nice floral taste with some ripe citrus fruit notes. Mouthfeel is very thin with a very active carbonation. Overall pretty good session beer and very glad I got to try it.

Serving Type Bottle

Appearance - Carmal burnt orange, 1/2 creamy head with some nice foamy lacing.

Smell - Lemon, grass, earthy, a sour, wine like aroma also. Some faint hops and sugars round this out.

Taste - Sour, bready and bitter first sip. Caramel and lemon are a large flavor. Hops are bitter and add a citric flavor and feel. Added sugars along with some grapes come in at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Bitter, mild sourness. Tounge gets alot of fruits, some sugars and hops. Palate gets remaining sour flavors along with some caramel and citric notes. Finish is bitter and dry.

Overall - Decent, nothing to strong or overpowering about this beer. The farmhouse flavors are mild and smooth yet, theres enough bitter and sourness in it. Its worth a drink, and the price is really nice too.

A - Hazy ice tea with a nice khaki fine bubbled head. Nice lace and retention.

S - Lemon and white peach tea with a sweet brown sugar backbone.

T - Big caramel malt note. Rum raisin, sweet ice coffee, and a dry tealeaf bitterness. Kick of lemon balances things out a bit.

M - Great carbonation on a medium-full body with nice retention on the palate.

O - Net sweet profile with great complexity.
