Took a chance on a shelfie. Definitely far beyond it’s prime. Smells perfect. Perfect fill, but time on a shelf at room temp can show when it’s well over a year old.

Light and hoppy. Orange pith, smooth, mild malt, and a slight floral soapy quality coming through at the end. Favored cold. Maybe one of the most satisfying beers I’ve smelled in a long time. Definitely worthy drinking out in the humid midwest summer heat

Bit sweet for my taste, HOWEVER that does not negate how enjoyable this beer is. Sweet and ripe topical fruit, yet light and mildly dank. Bit of hop on the back that brings your palate back.

So dry it almost comes off savory. Gin barrel and buckwheat make for a vegetal quality. Respectively balanced. Acidic, notes of lemon rind and overripe apple. Grain character very apparent. Unique and very tasty. 4.30
