3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
~14 oz draft pour in a Lost Abbey tulip type glass at Proletariat in New York. The pour is a lightly hazed golden yellow, with a one inch white head that falls with nice coating lace. The aroma is grass hay earth, with a nice mineral edge. Overall, leafy is the best descriptor of the nose I can come up with. The taste is the same leafy dry grass straw of the nose, crisp cracker malt and the mineral in the finish. The palate is light bodied, with bright active carbonation, and a super crisp clean dry leafy mineral finish. Delicate, delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear blond. Very bitter. There’s not much here besides bitterness though. Hops profile doesn’t have a lot of body other than the bitter. Palate is pretty simple. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy straw colored pour. Foamy, small, white head. Little bit of lacing. Big sour aroma that drowns everything else out. But there is some hints of malt and hops. Taste is a bit sweeter with some yeast notes, bitterness, and a citrusy note. Not too bad once you get past the aroma that doesn’t seem to fit.
