Pours pale golden with abundant airy head, effervescent . What, light malt and some sweet fruitiness in the aroma. Taste is light and sweet, but overall mouthfeel is watery and taste dissipates quickly. Difficult style to master, but good try.

BBB63 (5939) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle and served in snifter, My 1st beer from this Utah brewery: The pour is a clean straw hue with a very fizzy head and okay lace. The aroma and taste is very earthy, bubblegummy, banana-ish and moderately funky. Heavy on the sulfur esters and bready malts. Some spice notes and effervescent mouth feel. More old school farmhouse than I expected... I sort of dig this but do wish the finish was cleaner and snappy.

Bottle from Utah liquor store. Pours lemon with an inch of white foam. Doesn’t leave a lot of lacing. A little bit of hoppiness. Has some funk on the tongue. Finishes dry. Decent but not amazing.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Very pale straw, slight haze, light carbonation, large sudsy white head, fairly decent lacing.   Pale floral and wheaty nose.   A little yeasty as well, but not too heavy.   Soft wheatiness up front, with a pale floral and yeasty background.   Pretty much tastes like it smells.   Not a real bright example, but also not heavy like so many American ones.   Backside shows some more woodsy like floralness.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   As it warms it picks up more of a low shrubby woodsy floral note.   A little different, thankfully not too heavy.   Enjoyable.   Thanks Dallas for the bottle!
