On draught at the brewery. Sweet in a cloying way with honey and cereal pronounced throughout. Light mouthfeel and color if clear dusted gold. This is pretty tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden pour with no head and minimal carbonation. Nose is super faint but fruit and yeast. Smooth but still light body. Sweet fruity with a hint of citrus, grain and honey. Dry-ish finish. Not bad.
This is another "Ancient style" and is sort of mead-like.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pours a slightly cloudy orange w/ a thin head of medium bubbles. This doesn’t really smell or taste like a hop-free beer to me. It is just slightly spicy, medium bodied w/ a bit of prickling carbonation. It’s an interesting concept beer but not really exceptional.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow with white puffs of head. Saison yeasty aroma with dates. Taste is fruits... oranges, spices. Orange juice and dates with zero bitterness. Interesting.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy and husky aroma with some honey-like sweetness. The flavor has grain, straw, and honey sweetness. Decent.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Churchkey. A weird gruit ale that pours a light yellow. Nose and flavor are akin to a strange cheeseless risotto or grits. The lack of hops just doesn’t work here. Blech.
