3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ WHYM Craft Beer Cafe. I got this right before the keg kicked on 30 July 2013. The owner of WHYM poured this beauty into a snifter. Slightly hazy yellow color with thin soapy head. Nose is edible flowers and honey. The flavor started with an orange and lemon citrus followed by a nice malt backbone. The finish had a large amount of honey and light hints of yeast. Texture is dry with the body being medium. I never would have guess that this was over 8% ABV. Drinks like a 5 % brew. It really did the job on a warm summer evening. David makes another great brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium copper color with a finger of white fizzy foam. The nose is complex and inviting with nice rustic crusty bread, yeasty esters, clove, marshmallow, orange pith and a touch of grass. The palate follows the nose nicely with a touch more citrus coming through. Soft earthy notes that are balanced nicely with a kiss of honeyed sweetness but dries out nicely in the finish...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy muted yellow, nice 2 finger head that fades fast. Honey, hay, bright and wheaty. Holy sweetness. Crisp finish, honey, hay and a bit of cloves. Lovely juiciness throughout but not the orange bomb I was expecting. Very drinkable and surprisingly more alcohol than I expected. great job!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swingtop growler refill from the source for $9. To undersized snifter, it pours a hazy, sandy Citrine yellow with a nonexistent head. Aromas of honeydew melon, dandelion flowers, Parmesan and feta cheese, olive juice, elderberries, vanilla yoghurt, and farmhouse yeast. Tastes of candied citrus, chalk, European hops, straw, and ginger. Watery and slightly tart. Yeast and Bible paper by swallow. Refreshing, but not delicious.
