Lightly hazy gold. Small white head. Aroma of fresh fruits, past ripe fruits, mild sourness. Same flavors. Expertly balanced sweet, sour, funk, and bitterness. Great aromas and flavors. Medium body, balanced. Excellent biere de mars.

Pours a murky, orangey, honey color with a gushing, white, frothy, average head which settles quickly to a very small, frothy, lasting layer and leaves some, tight, Belgian lace. Nose is very refreshing and complex but subtle; a light sour note of overripe kiwi, lots of fresh flowers, musty yeast, some light barnyard notes, minerally, and faint wet earth. Flavor is bit of a disappointment for me; notes of light grains, some honey, some very faint but tart lemons, and some fresh grass into the finish. Not much of the complexities or funkiness that I got from the nose. Palate is okay with a medium body, a semi-dry but refreshing feel, and a soft to lively carbonation. The finish is quick with a lightly dry, a moderately light bitterness, and notes of minerals, fresh grass, some bretty tartness (lemons). A very nice sessionable, Biere de Garde, almost Biere de Mars-like. Very nice from the start but the flavor was just adequate. Quite nice from a dying style.

Aroma is malty, green, some hoppiness, slightly sour, wheaty and estery. Taste is crisp, clean wheat, some esters, a slight hoppiness, grassy. Finish is clean and crisp with a lot of dryness, but strangely finishes wet. This is very good

Excellent farmhouse ale. Pours light gold, not a lot head. Aroma stikes with a wonderful wild yeast/brett punch. Flavor also brings the funk, some honey notes, very well defined beer, great lingering acidic finish
