3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy pikapp327. Pours a hazy light gold with a very foamy head. Aroma is kinda funky, grain, hay and light spice. Flavor is very dry grain, slightly sour grain and yeast. Not bad, I’m surprised this isn’t classified as a saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330mL Bottle, purchased at Bottles - Providence, RI. Fluffy, light super dry nose of crisp, snappy pilsner malt and light fruit aromatics. Refreshing and wonderful. Pours in a slightly hazy paler golden, with plenty of ultrawhite, lacing head above. Fresh flavors carry the crackery pilsner malt further and bring some nice juicy hops, a spicy, herbal quality too. Delightfully dry, but with a nice long hop and yeast character finish. This is great. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle. Cloudy golden yellow with a thick, foamy pure white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, noble hops, bread, apple and light wheat. The flavor is bitter earthy hops, lightly sour yeast and bready malt. Light body with lively carbonation and a crisp, refreshing finish. Lots of flavor but still very light and super drinkable. I could drink this by the 6 pack if it weren’t so expensive.
