3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden with bright white head. Aroma is bubble gum and rosey esters, with a slight gingery note, and some red apple. Taste is pretty dry with a bit of crackers and a spicy note that ends in a mildly soapy mineral hint. Bubble gum is present into the finish along with a very slight acidity and a toasty wheaty note. $12/750

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ML Bottle-off orange pour w/a moderate head. Roasted malt aroma. Full flavors of malt, bread dough, yeast, caramel, & dark fruit. This is what I think of when I hear "farmhouse Ale". Very fresh, natural flavor; smooth & easy to drink. Alcohol is well hidden. Went great w/a late night cigar. This one was a real winner!

I was happy to see this on tap at Capone’s since it meant I wouldn’t have to join the throngs throwing up trade offers to try this. Pours a hazy gold hued brown with a large creamy white head. Nice big musk and wheat, with a bit of banana and peppery spice. Interesting and with some nice complexity. Lots of wheat in the body, sweet wheat fruit, more light musk. Finishes up with more light sweetness and a bit more musky yeast. Pretty good.

Bottle and Draft. Pours an orange body with a white full head. Cheesy, earthy dry floral hop tones, a light earth spritz of citrus and tangerines, mild provolone. Full bodied with a tangerine hop resins, citrus mild cheesy and viney hop tones. Very nice a bit young but this has plenty of potential to funk out nicely, delicious none the less.
