look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Golden yellow with a thick white head. Head lasts for an average amount of time, and leaves persistent lacing down the glass. This beer is bottle conditioned, and so was a bit cloudy.
Aroma: Fresh wheat and fruity spritz, followed by mellow malt and a bit of woodsy floral tones.
Taste: A sweet grainy malt that is quite light, a bit of sourness on the tongue, and some hoppiness. Initially the balance between the sharp, sour, and bitter wasn't very balanced, but I think this was due to accidentally pouring some of the yeast sediment into the glass. Once I had left it for a while, it mellowed down quite considerably, and was much, much better. A large amount of the malt in this beer is from Spelt, but not having any beer that features this grain before, unfortunately I can't really comment specifically on its contribution.
Mouthfeel: It was thicker on the tongue than expected, and somehow managed to be quite creamy whilst still light and refreshing. Good amount of carbonation, and quite clean.
Overall: Initially I was disappointed, as the balance was all wrong, but this was due to the amount of yeast sediment accidentally poured into the glass. Once it had settled, the beer was much more enjoyable, being light and refreshing ale with farmhouse aspects. There was enough complexity to keep me interested until the end, and sad that I only bought one bottle home with me.
(note that the scores given are for the beer after it had sat for a while to try to dissipate some of the yeast sediment)
