Best Quote During Tasting
I got a new driver the yesterday because my other one broke.
What did Miss Daisy do to him?
I hate you.
|Aroma - Huge citrus and lavender come out when you pop the top of the can. Orange notes are insane and there are some berry notes to be found as well. No real hops and it's hard to even get the malts. It kind of smells like a floral orange cream soda.|
|Appearance - The beer is a hazy light gold with a thin, white head made up of small bubbles that quickly reside to a thin film, nearly disappearing.|
|Flavor - The floral quality is overwhelming. It's lavender and almost vanilla in a big, big way. It's got that same orange cream soda quality found in the nose but it's just too big on the lavender to get to enjoy the other aspects of the beer. The berry character shows up here too but it's no match for the other flavors pounding your tongue.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is medium+ and the body is medium. It feels quite nice and pillowy on the tongue.|
|Overall Impression - Boy oh boy. This is a flower in a can. They weren't joking. It's very, very strong in the lavender and it unfortunately just overpowers the beer. This one could be toned down on that end to get more of that orange cream character to jump out and it would be easy to knock back a few. Bur Oak makes some great beers that we've highlighted in the past (Dark Star, Boone County Brown, Big Tree DIPA) so while this may not be our favorite, they're doing some great things. As it stands right now, Lily is a beer that'll quench your thirst on a hot day but you may only be able to drink one of them.|
