3.43/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured with very little white head. No head = no retention = no lacing. The brew is a pale cloudy yellow color. There was significant yeast sediment in the bottom of the bottle which had to be swirled around to get it out of the bottle. Had I not forcibly swirled this sediment, the beer likely would have been crystal clear.

S - Very wheaty smell with a hint of lemon.

T & M - Wheaty backbone with a bit of lemony twang. There is a bit of a grassy hop bite on the swallow, but it is fairly minor. Very light bodied and it finishes fairly clean, with a bit of hoppy aftertaste. Moderate carbonation makes it feel a little coarse in the mouth.

D - Not a terrible brew by any means, but probably not one I would run out to recommend to my friends. My first O'so experience...I'll be trying them all to see if this brewery is hit or miss.

12oz single, rotting in the fridge - if it werent for the thrill of rating, would i ever purchase this beer? Most likely not

appearance: poured into a pint - pale straw body, extremely clear, dull beige lace

smell: clean citrus, grain, touch of yeast, light grassy hops

taste: rather bland with a very grainy aftertaste - lemon and lemon rind are the dominating flavors here, grain and very pale grassy hops also present. nothing to see here

mouthfeel: very thin, bitter lemon

drinkability: ok

3.5/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Blurry, pale mustard yellow with a thin skimming of white lace.
Wheaty nose with a forward sense of lemon. Some low-level phenol pop up (allspice, peppercorns, granite). Hopping is pushed to the background, but brings a bit of floral bitterness to the aroma.
Doughy and wheaty once it hits the tongue. It veers towards lemony sour, but is stopped short by the dry, astringent yeastiness. Almost farmhouse/saisony with its phenolic dryness full of peppercorns, concrete, ginger, and hay. I'm not sure this is entirely intentional as all the other O'so's I've tried have had varying degrees of quality control issues. But things more or less work here. It takes a few sips to acclimate. Hops, touted on the label, have a minor role late, brings a weak lemon rind and grass notes.
Light, pasty bodied with low expressed carbonation, though it continues to tease out throughout the life of this beer.
This is hard to rate, and I do enjoy what's in my glass right now. But I feel like this misses its intented mark and fortunately lands on something decent but accidental. And I have a suspicion that another bottle or batch might not taste anything like this.
