Growler shared by Drew, from Tooch. Thanks! Pours a pale golde, persistent head. Nose is clean and nice. Soft vanilla and lemon rind. Clean and crisp. Good pils malt notes as well. On tasting, low tartness, balanced bitterness overall. Clean and balanced, good white pepper and biscuit. Low sweetness is balanced. 3722? Pretty fantastic beer.

1 liter. Growler courtesy of Sean... Pours a semi-transparent golden hue, somewhat clear, and topped with a creamy thin film of soapy white head... Clean grassy and mild citrus notes to go along with a lighter dry Belgian yeast note. Clean dry not simple but nice... Flavors are more of the same with a clean grassy Belgian yeast. Lighter bodied and easy drinking overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler sent by Avalon, thanks Frank. Pours a light slightly hazed light straw yellow with thin whispy white head. Dry peppery grain, slight hay, kiss of lemon and cotton candy, very faint sulfur...but really the nose is very reserved. Grainy, oats, white pepper, hint of lemon, maybe light green apple, bit of sulfur linger in the finish. Very drinkable and would be nice with food, wish the carb was a bit livelier.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub during the Hand Farm release. Poured a clear gold body with a creamy and dense bright white head. Aroma of yeast, lemons, white pepper, wet bread and a touch of spicyness that lingers. Thin to medium body with average carbonation and an average duration on the afertaste. Flavor starts off with slight lemon and citrus rind followed by soft white pepper notes along with spice and finishes with wet bread. This is solid but I’d take Hop Hands over this any day.
