Bottle. Semi-hazy yellow pour with a small slick of white foam. Aroma is light spice over generic sweet malt. Taste is light spice with some malt sweetness and tinge from the alcohol. Sticky mouthfeel. Did not care for this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours straw-gold with a small white head. Aroma of lemongrass, sourdough bread, hay, and pepper. Flavor follows suit but with plenty of malt sweetness present in the form of sourdough bread, biscuit, and toffee spiced up with a ton of lemon, herbs, and a gentle non-sour funkiness. Finishes dry and yeasty with little bitterness and a lot of the funkier elements of flavor remaining. Fairly heavy for the style, and definitely malty at first, but the carbonation is right even if the fluffy mouthfeel isn’t quite there. No heat presence. Overall, I enjoyed this a lot and thought the flavor profile was awesome, provided you like NB’s typical house flavors.

Enjoyed at a @JaxBrewBitch bottle share at Brewer’s pizza in Jacksonville,FL... Had high expectations for this one and I would say it is solid but not mind blowing. Really good farmhouse/sour/saison type that is smooth and drinkable. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The 22oz bomber pours clear gold with an off white head of foam. The aroma is earthy gravel, orange, lemon and lime. Interesting and oddly inviting. The taste is smooth with earthy sweet apple to pear to orange like fruitiness with a gravel sort of earthiness off in the background. Enjoyable product with enough depth to keep it interesting.
