O’So Brewing Co. Picnic Ants (6.3%)

picnic-antsNow this, this is great.
It’s dirty and dank and mushroomy in all the right ways.
In fact, it’s akin to my beloved Fantôme in look and feel.
Pouring a bright sunny gold with a frothy little head, the smell is damp straw, sherbet lemons and orchard flowers.
There’s a superb malt that’s packed with buttered caramel popcorn, pancakes and peanut brittle, its sweet and chewy and has a little burned bitterness at the edges, and there’s a big steely basil leaf herbal hopping, its lemon zest and orchard flowers popping and fizzing with life.
And all this goodness is draped in the earthy fungal fug of the yeast with its dark wooded glade dewy meatiness and its hint of spice right in the finish.
Superb.
