Smells like a ginger ale in a pine forest. Slightly hazy with a head with half coverage. Light fuzzy body like cotton on your tongue. From spice front blends into an amazing spruce fresh pine taste.

Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Finally getting this style tick! Pours a hazy gold with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma and taste of funky yeast with herbal notes, almost menthol. Alcohol is very well hidden, definitely interesting.

pours a hazy orange color with a shrinking white head. The aroma is heavy with fecal, farty funk, cheese, tart peaches and white wine. The flavor is tart stone fruits with nice subtle notes of spruce and barrel wood. More white wine in the finish.
