look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- hazy darker yellow body, two finger white head with good retention, effervescent and fluffy. Rings of lacing.

S- lemon, citrus, sweet Belgian candied sugar, mild funk

F- on the sweet side. Candied sugar sweetness, lemony acidity about 5/10, musty hay, dry funkiness, citrusy tartness separate from the acidity. Again, on the sweet side.

M- medium body, good carbonation, easy drinking wild that isn't too sour although it is quite a bit sweeter than I expected.

O- very similar to the other GI sours in that this is on the sweet side of the style but the acidity and tartness are more on spot here than in the others. Pretty good.
