Slightly hazed, golden-yellow color with a huge, froth head, leaving a thin, bubbly lacing at the side of the glass.

Slightly funky aromas of mellow yeast with green grass, lemon peel, onion and subtle, malt based sweetness.

Begins with an intriguing interplay between sparkling, coppery carbonation and tongue-biting, warm spices, coming along with hints of black pepper and herbal, floral notes. These get enhanced by a grassy hoppiness which inherits an enjoyable bitterness, wrapped up by soft, white-bread yeast. A malty sweetness developes underneath these flavors and becomes more and more detectable during the finish, which gets joined by a slick, soft bitterness, a melange of yeast and hops. These very different flavors go unexpetedly well together, enhancing each others taste, without any off-flavors or distractions. Clove morphs flawlessly into floral hops, with carbonation calming the malty sweetness by coppery metallicness.

Unexpectedly complex, but throughout pleasant with a finish which is bitter and sweet at the same time, leaving me very satisfied.

This is one of the most delicate beers I've ever had. On a guest draft at 3's in Brooklyn, March 10. Excellently made.

This is how a farmhouse ale should taste! Light-bodied and drinkable, with a refreshing hoppiness and complex flavors.

For some reason the scent of root beer was popping out to me. I'd never noticed that smell in a beer before but I really like it. Super tasty beer

750 ml bottle served in a wine glass

Appearance is golden yellow, there is aggressive carbonation, it is slightly cloudy, with a very fluffy white head

Smell is spelt, fresh cut straw, Belgian yeast, lemon zest, lagery Amarillo hops, whole grains, and ripe tangerine

Taste is cereal up front, mild blueberries, burnt hay, fresh wheat, there is soft bitterness, light funk, pepper, must, semi sweet oranges, lemon zest, tartiness in the finish, seems more a French inspired saison rather than a Belgian

Mouthfeel is a little prickly, thin, with very strong carbonation, because a little crisper as it warms, and also lingers slightly longer

This beer drank easy for six percent, had a nice lightness to it overall with subtle spiciness, would be nice on a hot day because of its drinkability
