   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20

Pours clear gold, with a three-inch head of dense white. Retention is average, leaving behind plenty of smeared lacework and a partial skim-coat on the surface. Aromatics are floral, perfumy, and lightly sweet and spicy. Rose petals with honey and white peppercorns. Fresh dew in a flower garden with earthy cedar underfoot. Light bodied, creamy and slightly crisp. A bit tacky and clingy. Very light malt and crisp wheat lead off the pallet, along with a light spicy note and some residual honey. A slight bitterness takes the edge of the light residuals. Finishes with rounded honey notes, a hint of lemon, and rosewater. A very delicate brew, and the pallet doesn’t really deliver what the nose promises. Refreshing and quenching. I hope to try the small amount that made it into barrels someday.

On tap at the pub in Santa Rosa. Pours slightly hazy with very little head. Carbonation is on the low to medium side. The aroma is very unique. Varying from the yeast to the many flowers used. The beer is served a little too cold and truly mellows as it warms to around 50F. It was a pleasant surprise & yet quite similar to other RRBC Belgian beers. Quite nice. I was very glad to get some before it goes away.

Nice and light, very drinkable - low carbonations, nice yeast flavor. Despite it’s smooth finish I found a great layered complexity to the flavors. Highly recommended with a meal or on a hot day!
