3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler. Bubbly white head on a very vibrant lighter marigold that’s very hazy. Green apple skin, some earth that suggest a touch of brett...but not idea if that’s the actual case...light fruits, banana, lemon and slight grass in the aroma. Flavor is quite similar, lemony hops, some grass, bready yeastiness and light fruits but finishes fairly bitter. Nicely refreshing and my only complaint would be that the body is a bit heavy feeling and lacks a zip. Otherwise, very good stuff.

Serving: draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a cloudy yellow with a large off white head. The nose is full of herbal notes. The flavor is complex and has a hint of saison du buff with lots more clove, perfume, and anise notes. Light to medium body with a lasting finish. Interesting.

Growler from the brewery, 08/27/2012. Pours thick hazy orange, thin white head, fades to spotty surface slick. Aroma of light straw, peppery yeast, nice fruity bouquet of orange, pineapple, banana, with soft herbal finish. Taste is tangerine, other tropical notes, pepper, herbal hops, moderate bitterness, light brett funk. Medium body, dry finish, drinks easy. Reminiscent of some Fantome brews. Really quite nice and tasty.
