Well-chilled bottle (it had been sitting in the fridge for days) into a glass. Thanks, Adam.

A: This pours literally all beige foam. It instantly converts to pure foam upon exiting the bottle. Retention is outstanding. I have to wait something like 10 minutes for it to calm down enough for me to take a sip.

S: I can't pick up much else beyond lemon, mild cherries, a touch of oak.

T: This is lightly sour, of a lactic variety, with good, undeveloped residual sweetness. There is very little depth here. On a scale of 1 to flavor, I'd give it a 3.

M: Very spritzy, overcarbed. Semi dry in the finish, or at least the carbonation gives that impression.

O: At the time of my review, this beer has a B average; it's a pretty clear demonstration of how overrating and consolation-prize grading plagues BA. Tell it like it is: this beer is awful. (852 characters)
