Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). I missed this last year so I was very excited to see it back this summer. Pours a firmly hazed dulled golden orange hue, a touch darker with firm hazy body. A frothy whitish head dies to a thinner film, sticks around small and laces small overall. Nose offers some striking elements, typical Willow Street base plays well with oranges, lemon, and gentle coriander. Crisp and fresh, fruity with some wheaty malts, flaked wheat, and mellow bready elements. Touches of spice, clove, the mellow earthy and gentle sweet peas come in a bit as it warms. Initial is lighter end of the spectrum in body, with just a touch of girth to hang the flavors well, growing citrusy orange and coriander, gentle spice, and mellow sweetness as orange peel and earthy mellow sweet peas come into the fold. Very interesting as the middle offers some more mellow sweetness, coriander and peas which really do play well together. Crisp finish, lingering peas as a more mellow malt body cleans up let’s the other flavors play out (Citrusy orange, touches of tartness, mellow spice, and a firm pea element). You wouldn’t expect this to work, but it does. Would be nice to see this more often. I am a sucker for regular Willow Street though..

Green boots. Sampled at Clybourn. Hazed orange yellow with a thin head. that coriander wit aroma. Light malt not overly sweet. Orange peel flavors. There is something odd and earthy that's subtle near the finish. As it warms the peas become more distinguished. Finishes with coriander which blends well with the peas. Good stuff. 7/3/7/4/15 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Clybourn. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a frothy white head. Nose is pretty earthy with some grainy notes and a citrus quality. The taste is pretty damn cool. Earthy and nutty with a high level of pea flavor. Some light sweetness with a nutty finish. Lacks wit character but I don’t really care; it let’s the peas come through nicely. I loved this beer on multiple levels.
