3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A healthy dose of citrus n’ spice on the nose. Pours crystal clear, bright yellow pilsner hue. Slightly tart with a nice dry finish, the Vivant farmhouse yeast is well represented. I think the only problem I have with this Beir de Garde is starting gravity or mash temp may have been too high resulting in too think of a mouthfeel (almost syrupy like). Other then that no complaints. Lips of Faith treats us well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale clear orange with a slight pinkish hue, holding on to a thin white head. Up front funky nose followed by grains and confectionary surgars. Taste starts with some barnyard flavors up front that turns to sweet oranges, and then it gets too sweet. Alcohol is well hidden, but has some burn in the finish. Very tasty, but unbalanced. Needs to be dryer.
