What the brewers say

“Fruity, Brett-forward, and hazy pale farmhouse.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Brettanomyces farmhouse aromas (horse blanket mainly) with a touch of lemon, blackberry, orange, leather, herbal, earthy, some sweet dark fruit. The Brett is tempered with complex and interesting citrus and berry hop aromas.”

Flavor: “Light body, high carbonation, low but balancing bitterness for such a low-gravity beer. Light mint character mixed with a light grapefruit and mango-like flavors. The Brett plays off of a very light malt backbone and carries everything through. Makes the citrus and tropical notes shine.”

Overall: “Very well-executed beer given the low ABV—this beer is incredibly hard to make. The wonderful hop profile that creates a nice silky body and gives it an interesting spiciness blends very well with the tartness at the beginning of the sip. Balancing every one of these strong flavors in such a light-bodied beer is difficult, but they’ve done it masterfully. Bravo.”
