3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A hazy dark blonde beer, with a large, frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly to moderately yeasty (dust), with notes of smoke, lemon, banana. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, average length finish with light to moderate bitterness. A pleasant surprise. A strongly wheaty and lactic beer, with a good amount of both drinkability and complexity.

Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2013. Wow this divided opinions! Crazy shit. Cloudy yellow brown. Smokey, funky, grainy, citrusy, lactic, sour. The ladies came up with lapsang souchong and lemon as a description, I thought a bit of kvass in there too. I think I liked it, was an experience for sure.
