3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a tiny amount of beer with a gigantic amount of head. like 80% head. It took 10 minutes to pour the whole glass. Also This beer has a huge amount of "chunky" yeast. The first time I had this beer we poured the yeast into our glasses (split with Marc). The second time I kept the yeast out (split with Kevbo).
Once the head fades, it leaves a barely visible amount of foam at the top and a ton of sticky lacing on the sides.
You can taste the Spelt as long as you don’t pour the yeast into the glass. I swear to god the "Chunky" yeast kills the flavor of the spelt. But that’s all you can taste.
In all honesty I wouldn’t go out of my way for this beer. I love this style of beer and this one is mediocre to barely good at best.
It has a champagne like mouthfeel. Bubbly and very carbonated.
Over all? hmmm At the time of this rating this beers averages an A-. That’s crazy. This beer isn’t better than a B-
Grab a Hennepin instead! Not on my list of beers to have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle on 4/3/2008. Faintly hazy light gold body with a medium foamy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has some earthy qualities, countered by a light floral , citrus, and spice notes. Light body with a champagne like effervescence and very dry, palate cleansing mouthfeel. Not much sweetness at all, an underlying acidity, and spicy bitterness round out the flavor.

This was like a rustic mouthful of mint and cheese. It was lively and alluring, with a light cloudy hue.
