3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly to form a thing ring around the pint glass. Aroma contains a large dose of fresh cut bartlett pear, a smaller dose of soapy coriander, little stings of orange, and a floral element going on as well. Smells quite similar to its bigger brother. Flavor contains floral honey, sweet pale malt, light pear, perhaps bubblegum and a subtle bitterness towards the finish. Mouthfeel is medium and carb is the appropriately geared to the high end of the spectrum. This is really crisp,clean, and technically well-executed which is no surprise given the source, and this would be a great summer session selection.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white ring. Strong aroma of tart yeast and brea. Light carbonation with fine clingy bubbles. Taste is mild, bready, slightly tart yeast. OK, but flavor is too simple and doesn’t last very long.

I love the aroma, some spice and citrus kind of like ginger ale. The flavor is sweet at first with the spices but gets bitter towards the back. Dry and refreshing.
