COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have collected and grown old traditional hop varieties and selected the best combination of these for their aroma, and balanced them with additional organically grown hops, in this, our first beer. Although we farm under both biodynamic and organic standards, we go much further in our quest to produce the very best hops and barley. Our micro-biology lab continuously tests the soils, adding compost and compost teas so that the biology in the soil has the right proportions of beneficial bacteria and fungi for the hops and barley to be at their best and most flavoursome. This creates the deep flavours of the beer.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Effulgent blonde. Thin yet rocky and persistent bottle-conditioned foam. Lovely bouquet of herbaceous, peppery, lemon-rind hops and subtler notes of honeydew melon, minerals, grass, toasted crackers, and honeycomb. Strong scent of plastic, as well. Soft and snug carbonation. Juicy hop-derived surge of lemon pulp is quelled by a stark, almost salty, palate-scrubbing wash of minerals and vividly defined toasty pils malt. Succulent hop flavors continue onward, yielding an elegant medley of flowers and honeydew melon which provides wonderful contrast to the firm foundation of malt and minerals. Remains beautifully balanced at the finish, with a scratchy edge of grassy, herbal hop bitterness prevailing gracefully over the crisp structure. Aside from the curious note of plastic and puttylike yeast, this is clean and supremely quaffable. And bottle-conditioned, to boot? Ya gotta love this brewery!
