Draft at Eulogy, courtesy of kkearn, thank you sir. Flew up to Philly just for this beer. From Idaho. Hazy golden color, tiny white head. Arona is typical of the Dupont teroir, with dusty and sour banana bubblegum. Taste is barnyard dust, animal parts and hay. Delicious.

bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 8, 2012
750 c&c from Bine & Vine. Pours dark hazy orange/amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast/spice,arguably banana ester, some earthy hop, and barely detectable roast malt. A sort of light brettiness also. Maybe that’s part of the earthy. Med body/foamy carb. Flavor is a bit muddied. Earthy hop/malt with some yeast/spice. The hint of sour didn’t pan out. Maybe slightly tart citrus. Still, it’s a bit earthy, somewhat fruity, and it drinks pretty well. Can’t see why the aroma doesn’t coincide more with the flavor.
