Pours a very hazy, dark straw color with golden yellow edges and a massive three finger pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Possibly over carbonated taking a long time to settle leaving streaks of soapy lacing behind. Earthy aroma with pungent weed, resinous oils and floral buds. Fresh cut grass, pine needle and spruce tip along with a prominent dank weed character. Subtle citrus/tropical fruit presence along with bready yeast and light fruit esters. Pale biscuit malt with cracker, apple, pear and banana. Medium body with tight carbonation but not as strong as I feared. Crisp earthy hop bitterness lingering over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a slightly dry finish. Spicy, grassy hops with resinous pine needle followed by bread, biscuit and light fruit sweetness. Some apple and pear toward the finish but lacking some of the tropical/citrus fruit found in the nose. Carbonation is too strong but otherwise it’s crisp, well balanced and easy to drink with decent hop bitterness.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma is slightly sweet and grainy with a moderate hop aroma. Some lime, floral notes and tropical fruit. Pours a clear, bright yellow gold with a medium small, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges. Low lacing and small legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with some grain and cracker notes. Medium light hop flavor, less pronounced than in the aroma. Some light citrus notes and moderate floral character. Light tropical fruit and medium bitterness. Some nice mineral notes. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer with a nice grain character. An interesting hop profile that works nicely. Good water qualities.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2015 (Bue en fût sur place): Très floral, citronné et même juteux par moment. Belle présence fruité, légèrement sulfureuse et une finition sèche pour conclure en buvabilité.

On tap at Noble. It pours a very pale, clear yellow color with a huge frothy white head. The aroma is nice with lots of herbal, citrus and lemon verbena with a little dank. The flavor is very good with more citrus, lemon lime, herbal tea leaves and a nice citrusy finish with mild spice. Really tasty and pleasant to drink.

Draft at the brewpub. Good stuff. Some dry pale malts, light hay bitterness and a bit of zesty citrus. Nicely balanced. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Crisp pale cereal finish with some pleasant New World hop character. A fun interpretation.

On draft at the brewery. Clear golden pour, with a white head and some lacing. Grain, herbal, some citrus, notes of tropical fruit and melon, and crackery malt. Very hoppy for a pils. Pretty good.
