DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Pours a nice blonde with a great haze and a slight white head. Very tart nose. Taste is also tart with a clean finish. Feels like its almost a blank slate with room for more flavors, but keeps it simple.

Bottle. Pours great body - extremely hazy orange with small white head. Tart aroma. Mild flavorless in the taste, tart towards the finish. Very sessionable.

Thanks to Glouglouburp for the bottle!
Think Luciernaga’s complexity and RR Damnation’s touch. Opaque gold, nice fizzy white head and lacing. Nose is ultra-clean, sweet with light malt and grain yet tart in apple and minor banana. Real minor yeast. Flavor is subtle but absolutely balanced and delicious: sweet honey and bready malt right alongside refreshing hop bitterness, lemon, yeast, and slight dust. Carbonated yet wonderfully smooth and supremely drinkable. Master class here.
