Swan Song at Bruce’s. Thanks to Manny G. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Nose of mild piss and sweet malts. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Light dry malt cream. Mildly sour orange and lemon. Some peel. Little yeast. Light bitterness in the airy dry finish. Nice flavour and pretty drinkable, the nose a bit pissy.

Bottle. April 2014 batch shared with my wife and sent to me by Tom and Pat thanks guys! Apperance is cloudy yellow with frothy white head that is there to last. Aroma is grape must, citrus funk, melon, and lime. Taste is light citrus funk, white wine, melon, finishes dry, crisp, and clean with hint of lingering bitterness. Body is a touch thin, lots of carbonation, overall this is very well done!

Bottle: I believe this is the 2012 batch? Thanks to Kevin. Golden-yellow body with lighter straw hints. Volatile, huge eggshell-white head grows large, cloudy, & foamy, leaving fat chunks of lacing as it slowly recedes. Aroma is like a huge bouquet of roses. Super floral. Wet flowers & bitter, zesty grass. Successive whiffs reveal a more rounded hop character with underlying tones of earth, dirty, farmhouse musk, wet wood, & touches of uneasy Brett. Light apple skin & pear fruit in the back-end, still underpinned by a large, floral bitterness. Flavor is largely floral & bitterly botanical as well. Slightly vegetal at times, but mostly comprised of flower petals, grass, & rosewater. Perfumey, weedy, grassy, bitter, zesty hops ring throughout. Mild citrus zest shines through at times with a touch of hefty funk & wet oak that only shows up near the finish. Sharp, heavily carbonated, dry finish. Good, but it would benefit from a little less bitterness abrasion & some amped up farmhouse tones. ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2014
From a 75 cl bottle, courtesy of _angst_. CLoudy golden, medium white head. Fruity aroma with vegetative bretty notes. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness, somewhat clashing with the (albeit soft) acidity. My lest favourable HF beer so far. Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
