Slightly hazy. Amber. Lightly spicy, a little sweet in the finish. Some dusty yeastiness. Nice mellow farmhouse ale - nothing stands out but a very pleasant quaff. The sort of beer if it was local you’d drink a lot of it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ledgers in Berkeley, CA. BB 30/04/10. Hazy orangey color with a fizzy white head that didn’t stick. Aromas of citrus, taffy, funk and likely lots of other stuff. Near medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is earthy, mildly funky, with a little citrus. It seems quite well balanced. Spices or herbs do strange things to my mouth. Maybe there are real flowers involved. I really like this stuff. Hey, it’s a biere de garde. Got to love it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared @ the Purple Pig. Light golden, hazy, with a solid frothy white head that holds beautifully. Very interesting aroma that required some careful consideration to pin down. Both fruity and vegetal at the same time, like starfruit, or guava and celery, with creamy undertones. Flavours lean toward vegetal and lightly herbal, with straw-like malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Very fresh and lively.
