bhensonb (11979) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours hazy gold with a transient,slight white head. Aroma is fruity - a bit tart, a bit strawberry. A bit grassy. Med body. Flavor is grassy and fruity. Definitely tart/bitter. Fruit comes on strong in the end, but so does a nobel hop type bitter. Finishes with fruit. Hard to pin the fruit down. Kind of like not quite ripe white peach. Interesting and different.

Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear pale golden with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh light citrusy hoppy nose with some soft pale malts. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with a good fresh hop flavor and lightly bitter balance before a crisp bittersweet finish. An enjoyable APA.
