Slightly bitter with a touch of wet hay. Does that sound bad? It’s actually quite refreshing with a touch of complexity.

POP of a cork and off we go. Hazy straw lemon color. Big, bright white head.
Nose is grass, fresh hay, bright citrus, some corn.
Taste is lemon peel, grass, corn, with a big hop bite that is slightly too astringent.
Soft lemony feel. A little flat in carbonation. Not all that lively. Interesting enough. geolgau (468) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - OCT 20, 2017
Aroma is pure barnyard, with notes of fresh grass, grassy hops and a bit of corn. Grassy and spicy taste, bitter and citrusy. Hay, slight corn, a tad sweet and very herbal. A bit astringent, fully carbonated, crisp and refreshing. Farmhouse all the way.

Bottle, Malt Attacks. Light golden pour, billowing white foam. Superb expression of yeast here, delicate spicy and fruity esters. Crisp grainy body. Good bitterness, and a nice hint of citric fruit in the finish. A real delight to drink. MatChar (96) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2017
