Pours a pale gold, cloudy. Large bubbles; head is white, thin, sticky lace. Small bead. Looks a bit flat but nice.

Smells funky but pleasant. Fresh, slight tang. Citrus, pineapple, green apple. Very enticing.

Taste is funky, pleasant upfront. Decent barnyard notes, then finish is wheaty and slightly phenolic, but presaged by nice hoppy character. Fresh citric bitterness. Nice blend of funk with fresh fruity notes. Excellent palate.

Smooth enough, bit of bite on the back. Enjoyable.

Great blend of really disparate brewing styles synthesised into a pleasant, interesting drop.

A - Light haze on a light gold and wheat body. Rustic, foamy white head has nice retention and great lace.

S - Surprisingly deep. Earthy barn yard funk, sage, black pepper, lemon zest, hay, and fresh wheat.

T - Smooth bready wheat opening, funky hay center, dried grass and lemon zest finish. The bitterness is slightly waxy on the backend.

M - Medium body with par carbonation.

O - Interesting concept. The funk, waxy bitter, and lemon highlights are refreshing, but not necessarily sessionable.
