Bottle shared with Marsiblursi @ Haket. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity, yeasty and tiny spicy with crackers, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, dry soil, barnyard, leather, hay and lemon zest. Taste is bitter, salty, tiny fruity and tiny funky with crackers, pressed seaweed (nori), grapefruit juice, grass, dry soil, minerals, lemony soap, pineapple, mango, barnyard and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and light bodied. Finish is bitter and salty with crackers, grapefruit rinds, nori, dry soil, hay, barnyard and leather. Tasty stuff with an interesting salty seaweed touch. Would love to pair this with sushi in the future.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Slightly hazy golden body with a nice, stable off-white head. Pleasant citric fruity aroma with a hint of lemon, peppery spice and light malt. Flavor is medium sweet, soft malt, fruity, relatively bitter and a light hint of funk. Balanced and refreshing. Fine body, pleasant aftertaste. Really nice one that probably will be even better after a little cellaring for more farmhouse flavors.

More funk as a flavours along with some booze. Some piny hops and an assertive bitterness.
Carbonation seems a little high.
