3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Golden yellow pour with a pillowy white head. Floral aroma. Lemon thyme. Sage. Roses. Maple seeds. Ripe Meyer lemon. Very fragrant. Bit sweet. Tinge sour. Slight bit of yeasty funk. Green banana. Honeycomb. Lots of notes. Delicate but not overly refined. Smooth in general but harsh in spots. One of the few "lighter" beers that I can see significantly improving over time.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Farmers, Pours a hazy golden straw, medium white head, small clearish bubble laced. As for aromas, wow, intense tropical flavors including peach, grapefruit rinds, apricot, tangerine, melons. Aroma is an easy 10 for me. Taste didnt live up the smell but was still good. Floral belgian character, mixed in with nice hops, vanilla, and peach fruit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. The tulip is left coated with sheets of soapy lacing.
Dank, floral hop aroma with a perfumy, piny character that’s countered by tropical and citrus notes along with some pale malt. Hints of pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel and tangerine along with some biscuit and strong grainy graham cracker presence.
Medium bodied with a delicate hop presence that lingers throughout, providing subtle bitterness that counter the sweeter fruit notes. Floral with some pine needle and grass followed by hints of pineapple, orange peel and grapefruit. Malt backbone provides balance without overpowering the hops. Hints of graham cracker and biscuit along with faint perumey booze.
