Growler from Trophy Brewing. Pours a fairly average looking bright deep gold with a white head than quickly recedes. Nose of a funky yeast strain (apparently an original yeast strain found under a fig tree?), light citrus, grain, bread. Slightly tart notes. Doughy flavors; hints of summer fruit and just a hint of spice from the rye. A wonderfully balanced beer. Lively palate and a dry finish.
