5/5  rDev +23.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

The beer has a super light yellow color...must be pure base malt (barley and wheat, maybe?). Great clarity. Little to no head. The aroma is sour and of cereal. The flavor has such a nice sour kick to it. There is also some corn flavor, but not DMS-like...more cereal and grainy. The carbonation seems high but it's nice in this beer...it helps accent the sourness. At ~3% ABV in addition to being great tasting, this beers drinkability is off the charts.

It has such an unreal clean lactic flavor. No acetobacter/vinegar flavors. Pure clean sourness. There is no doubt in my mind that this is easily my favorite session beer of all time, and one if my absolute favorites of all time.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter. Purchased in Attleboro, MA.

Appearance - pours a super hazy, sunny yellow body with a decent sized white head that reduces fairly quickly to leave no lacing.

Markell - quite yeasty, bready upfront, tart citrusy, honey, banana, light fruit on the follow through.

Taste - big green apple, tart lemon-lime, raw yeast, bread, berries, banana. Follow through is acidic and dry, lemony.

Mouthfeel- high carbonation, light body. Refreshing

What a nice, easy, complex beer. Nice flavor nice price, easily drinkable. Recommended.
