3.98/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured with a half finger of head on a fairly clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is wonderful. Lots of grain and a little bright apple and pear.
The taste is a crisp fruity (apple and pear again) with a touch of lemon bitterness. Nicely balanced and light.
The texture is fizzy with a crisp body.
Delicious.

4/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml bottle split between two large snifters. Poured vigorously, so any sediment is probably mixed in.

Pours very cloudy, golden, with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Smell is yeasty, grassy, slightly spicy, hint of lemon.

Taste is surprisingly crisp, lemony, a bit hoppy/lemony, Very yeasty, bready.

Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, this is a very solid beer, though not spectacular.
