Appearance: clear gold and straw with hints of orange. Suspended specs of yeast. Airy bubbly white head. Lace clumps and sticks everywhere. Head looks like a bubbly white slice of bread. Swirls nice, releasing a massive nose.
Nose: little bit of funk up front – horse blanket, dry old bales of hay. Turned lemons – lemon and funk melded as one. Golden leather and lemon oil, shammy. Wildflowers blooming on a hot summer breeze; dandelion and sunflowers. Kiwi and papaya.
Palate: yum! Soured lemon skin, horse blanket, leather, dry bales of hay. Touch sticky along the sides. Immediately dries top middle of tongue. Spice with caraway coming to mind. Wildflowers, pollen, and green flower stems. Grabs back of tastebuds with papaya and kiwi, lots of kiwi. Each quaff reveals layers of flavor both separate and seamless. White peppercorns. Faint horse and hay dust in the breath.
Final Thoughts: yum and yum! I love me some farmhouse funk. Another winner from the Smokestack Series from Boulevard Brewing. Thanks to the sis for providing me with yet another delicious beer experience.
