On tap at the brewery. Poured bright yellow orange with a generous head and wonderful lacing and plenty of effervescence. Slightly spicy leafy green hops aromas with a fresh bread maltiness. Slight bitterness from the floral hops offsets a subtle malt sweetness on the tongue. Nice soft mouthfeel as you would expect from a first rate pilsner, plenty of carbonation, and a well-balanced but flavorful aftertaste.

Draft - Light grains and a touch of funk. Clear gold and a white head. Grains and nice bitterness with a clean finish. Well done. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours a very hazy, dark straw color with golden yellow edges and a massive three finger pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Possibly over carbonated taking a long time to settle leaving streaks of soapy lacing behind. ineedbeer (2266) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Earthy aroma with pungent weed, resinous oils and floral buds. Fresh cut grass, pine needle and spruce tip along with a prominent dank weed character. Subtle citrus/tropical fruit presence along with bready yeast and light fruit esters. Pale biscuit malt with cracker, apple, pear and banana.
Medium body with tight carbonation but not as strong as I feared. Crisp earthy hop bitterness lingering over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a slightly dry finish. Spicy, grassy hops with resinous pine needle followed by bread, biscuit and light fruit sweetness. Some apple and pear toward the finish but lacking some of the tropical/citrus fruit found in the nose. Carbonation is too strong but otherwise it’s crisp, well balanced and easy to drink with decent hop bitterness.
On tap at the brewery. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Aroma is slightly sweet and grainy with a moderate hop aroma. Some lime, floral notes and tropical fruit.
Pours a clear, bright yellow gold with a medium small, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges. Low lacing and small legs.
Flavor is fairly sweet with some grain and cracker notes. Medium light hop flavor, less pronounced than in the aroma. Some light citrus notes and moderate floral character. Light tropical fruit and medium bitterness. Some nice mineral notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and crisp with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an alright beer with a nice grain character. An interesting hop profile that works nicely. Good water qualities.
On tap at the source. Pour is a clear golden. Aroma is tangerine with some grapefruit. Flavor follows. Nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2015 (Bue en fût sur place): Très floral, citronné et même juteux par moment. Belle présence fruité, légèrement sulfureuse et une finition sèche pour conclure en buvabilité. Bacterial (3060) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2015
