Pours hazy yellow / orange with a white head. The aroma has lots of nectar fruit, some bugginess, vanilla, caramel malt, some oak and light tartness - nice balance. It is medium/light bodied that starts off crisp then turns smooth and has lots of soft carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of nectar fruits, mild sourness, wild yeast, spice and dry malt. The finish has light oak graininess added. Really enjoyable.

Bottle, fresh. Pours light hazy straw with a night soft white head. Aroma is lemon, dry earth and grain, bit of funk, floral aromatics, really nice.
