4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2012 batch on draft at Harvest Festival. Served in a... HF glass (shocking).
Reviewed the first batch from the bottle previously, but this year’s was distinct enough to merit a new entry in my opinion. Poured a chalky, hazed golden color with a frothy white head; excellent retention and ample lace. Floral and nectary nose of honey, clover, dandelion and grass. Flavor is similar, dominated by the floral and lemon flavors with an ample tart and light pepper finish. Dry medium body with high carbonation and a crisp finish. I want more of this beer always.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is yeasty, fruity and vinous - bread dough, an entire groveof various tropical fruits and a whisper of white wine. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and Key West carbonation. The flavor is tart and lemony, and very reminiscent of a gose. Think Fantôme Pissenlit, but with a suggestion of salt. Finishes crisp, mildly tart, and there’s that rumor of salt again to finish things off. Bottle shared by newcigarz and I dug it!

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks adamjackson). Looks good; a hazy gold with foamy white head. Smells tart, yeasty, and hoppy with some spice. Tastes like it smells, but better, with a nice, dry finish. You get more of the honey and dandelions in the tastes. Nice on the palate with a clean, dry finish. Tasty.

Bright golden pour, fluffy white head. Nose is amazing - fresh cut grass, pepper, spices, honey - basically smells like a meadow. Flavor is very floral and dry with a clean finish. World class stuff.
