This came with the Stone bottlecap.

A careful pour yields a big white two fingers of head. Sediment and a lot of bubble action going on in the straight yellow body. The head retains very well.

Yeast, wheat, grass and a mild funk reminiscent of lemons and sour apples.

Yeast, wheat and bitter grass starts it off. A little sour apple and lemon chime in. Finishes off with a gardeny spice character with a hint of pine. Parsley and thyme are definitely apparent at the end.

The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. It washes down rather clean. There is no real bite from the carbonation. Dry finish.
