Pretty pour, with a creamy top of lacy white head sits atop a completely cloudy cylinder - saw a previous review that described it as polished brass, which is apt.

Farmy and a bit acidic - not really citrus so much, but something that is somewhat off-putting.

Horsey up front, with veiled assumptions of citrus. The hops are in the background, but ill-defined.

Incredible in the mouth - creamy, with some soft carbonation. The foundation is there, but the flavor to back it up is not.

I'd like to enjoy this beer more, but I can't bring myself to do so. Honestly, it's kind of a mess - great look and mouthfeel - odd nose and taste.

A - hay colored, small uneven head

S - orange peel, some grassiness

T - Refreshing start, with some sweetness of lemon peel, some wheat flavors, giving way to an odd - if not unpleasant - sour taste. The higher alcohol gives it a lemon drop shooter feel

m - bubbly - champagne like feel

Overall, not impressed. Maybe it would be better on a hot summer day. The complexity it has takes it away from style, and into a unwelcomed direction
