UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 What a wonderful brew. This hits on every angle. A true European styled bier de mars. I can think of a thousand things to eat alongside this elegant craft. Cheese, grilled veggies, charcuterie... Hot dogs. Thank you Lost Abbey!

Taster at brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A bit of yeast on the nose. Kind of fruity on the tongue. Has a bit of hop bite on the tongue. I’m not sure I get the baking bread vibe but its solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Pizzacato in San Diego. Pours deep golden, clear, with a big creamy white head. Hay aroma, some yeast, with light pale malt sweetness. Flavor is very light hay and hops, again with light malt honey sweetness. Does not finish particularly clean or crisp, and there is lingering yeast on the palate. relatively light bodied with medium carbonation. This tasted much like a standard Helles lager to me when I was expecting a bit more farmhouse and light yeasty goodness. Only OK in my book.

75cl bottle. Hazy golden with small head. Aroma is yeast, esters, bisquit. Taste is some more esters and banana, yeast funk and malty sweetness. An ok beer but rather prefer a Belgian style saison. To mutch hitting the sweet spot for me.
