500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, dated 110416. Pours yellow gold with an off white head. Aroma... I was expecting German hops, but it seems closer to mosaic... tropical fruit, a hint of lemon, scallion. This is a little thin, as Maine Beers go. Nice flavor, though... grass, tropical fruit, a bit of floral hop. AirForceHops (8288) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 26, 2016
500 ml bottle with dating of 11/04/16. Crystal clear golden color, thin bubbley white head. Aroma is grassy, scallion, pale malt. The flavor is pretty bright. But German hops? I believe only because the Brewer says so, but it seems like Mosaic or Galaxy variety. Mouthfeel is light and clean. Nice Chalumeaux (1949) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2016

From the 550 ml. bottle with a bottling date of 9-14-16 (first batch). Hazy yellow pour under a lingering foamy white head. This is a few months old so I may not be getting the full effect. The aroma has a toasted pale malt character mainly with a slightly earthy hop note. There is a very slight citrus note but it may have been more forward if I drank it 8 weeks ago. Medium body and on the creamy side. The taste has a good pale malt toastiness and a mildly bitter finish. ClarkVV (7141) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottled 11/4/16, drunk 11/17/16.
Good clarity, with just a touch of haze and a very pale golden body with a medium-sized, white head of moderate retention.
Very subdued nose shows very light herbal hop notes giving way to soft melon and pommelo notes (wakatu). Biscuit and wheat behind everything softens things even more so and the finish has bits of lime, grapefruit, melon, herb and light pepper. Very clean, no alcohol.
In the mouth it’s decidedly soft, subdued and very wheat and biscuit-like, malt-wise. Soft textures thanks to the malty body and tight carbonation. Very little sweetness and lots of melon and herbs. Sounds kind of odd, the wakatu and the German hops together, but it works just fine, mostly on account of the extremely minimal bitterness. Clean, mild, incredibly easy-drinking. Not at all what I was expecting, but quite delicious and a nice break from the big bitterness that most of their beers have.
