Shared by starrdogg. Thanks Matt. The beer is light golden yellow with a soft, white head. The aroma is great, offering some citrus and tropical fruits. The flavor brings a light, biscuit, malty character that gracefully balances the beer. Still a hop forward offering, of course. Lingering hop bitterness and tropical citrus on the palate. Delicious. I could drink a lot of this.

Enjoyed via a 750ML growler filled 2 days ago at the brewery. It’s been in the fridge since then and is being enjoyed in a Duvel Tulip.

A - Poured a hazy straw gold color. 1 Finger creamy head with big and small bubbles. Really nice head lacing was present and the bubbles faded slowly.

S - Lots of big chewy simcoe scent. Pine cones and sap were dominating with some hint of lemon juice and cloves.

T - Very light start to this beer with a hint of light malts that covers the tongue followed by a solid pine resin bitterness and some sugary sweet honey.

M - 80% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body.

O - This is a very sessionable beer. It’s light, bright, hoppy and easy to drink. A perfect summer time session ale. Great job Shawn and John!

My beer should be this beer. Light bitterness and a huge hop presence, with some nice vaguely honey-esque malt. Amazing, especially given the ABV.

Session ale perfection. So light and refreshing with great citrus, grass, and dank hop flavor that doesnt result in much bitterness. Very lightly malty and drinkable as all get up!

On tap at the Otey abode. Pours a cloudy straw color with moderate frothy white head. Nose holds stunning notes of of pineapple and mango tropical fruits as well as citrus sweetness and touches of spruce and dank earthy loam. Flavor adds lemongrass and white grapefruit to broaden the fruit melange. A nice bitter finish but delectably drinkable. So amazingly flavorful for 4 percent. An incredible collaboration brew.

On tap at my house. Hazy golden-straw in appearance with a robust long lasting white frothy head. The aroma holds a variety of hop facets, each of which plays very nicely with the others. Dank piney herbals lead to juicy nectar fruit and vibrant tropical fruit. Very fresh and bright, capturing the individual hop character of each respective variety, while simultaneously providing a union that is more delicious than the constitutive parts. The body of the beer is quite full given the abv, even to the point of drinking like a light bodied ipa. There are literally no major flavors to obstruct the hops, which is amazing if you’re into that sort of thing. Caressing pillowy carbonation provides excellent texture, while the finish remains very dry and crisp. With all the super extreme styles being brewed these days, this provides an amazingly welcoming experience. I wish more brewers undertook refinement of low alcohol beer, as it truly is among the most difficult style to do exquisitely well. Hat’s off to this collaboration, for it certainly accomplishes that goal.

Poured at HFS Farmhouse Fest. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a finger of sticky foam. Lots on fresh grassy hop notes with round melon and a rustic wheat bread backbone. Smooth easy drinker a touch thin in the mid palate but overall a very sessionable flavorful beer.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 On tap @ The Farmhouse (Burlington VT). Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus. Taste is light citrus and grapefruit, some pineapple, and some cracker. Almost tastes like a light version of S&S 5. Nice crisp and really refreshing!
