ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Buy Rite, 12/24/13

Aroma: The nose is hugely floral/potpourri, with some spice, lemon zest, and yeast notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a small white head and drippy lace spots
Flavor: The taste is floral and spice, mild bitter, some underlying sweetness (citrus and honey)
Palate: The body is light-medium, not watery at all, just light, soft and clean feel, easy finish
Overall Impression: This is an interesting one for sure. They weren’t kidding with the whole edible flowers thing, those flavors comes through in droves. It is super easy drinking, fresh, refreshing, and clean, but I’m not sure how often I’d really want to drink a beer this floral. Still, quite interesting, and I really enjoyed drinking it once.
