3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. I was excited to try this new brewery and was pleasantly surprised by all three of their brews! It pours a nice clear golden color with a disappearing white head. The aroma has distinct notes of peach, pear, cereal grains and herbal hops. The flavor is the same. It’s light on the palate with complex flavors of pale fruit (peach, pear, white grape) before a mildly herbal, bitter finish. Very drinkable. If I have one complaint, the carbonation is a bit low for the style. Hopefully this will be worked out in future batches, but otherwise this is a very nice debut!
