5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle: † Golden hued dark straw, very hazy, thin sudsy white head, decent lacing. † Soft floral aroma, bright wheatiness, along with minor spices. † Wheaty and grassy at first, with the soft floral notes. † Flavorful, strong, but not sharp. † Spices donít translate onto the tongue as much as the nose suggested. † Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate. † Very wheaty finish, grassy, with faint floral notes. † Clean, but its like some parts of it need to be more pronounced, mainly the spices and floral notes. † Still tasty tho.

Bottle: The aroma consists of apple, floral notes, a touch of lemon, and herbal notes. It pours hazy golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a question concerning dose of sweet fruit and apples. The finish has light floral, Iron peel, and faint herbal notes. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of floral notes with some wheat and yeast notes. The flavor is similar, but a bit more complex. I get some strong berry character as well as some floral notes, wheat, biscuit malt, yeast and pepper. As the beer warms there are also some strong herbal notes coming through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.
