look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Tried this on-tap at the Bruery Tasting room this afternoon.

A - This was poured for me into a Bruery tulip. It pours a very light hazy yellow, with maybe a tinge of green in it. Very interesting color. Had about a one inch head to start and went down at a fairly average pace.

S - Has a musty sour smell as you would expect from this sort of sour beer. Along with some notes of grain and citrus.

T - The taste at the beginning is mild wheat along with citrus and tangy flavors. On the back end of the beer it's more sour and the citrus flavor continues.

M - Its a very thin beer but for what this beer is doing that is a good quality. Also has a good amount of carbonation.

D - Great drinkability this a beer that is not overpowering but has great very subtle flavor. It seems like a great spring/summer beer to sip on, on a nice evening. It has a nice amount of sour but is not overwhelming. I could drink a lot of this in a night which I think it great.

3.95/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle.

This beer pours a rather hazy, pale golden straw colour, with a fistful of puffy, frothy, and tightly foamy eggshell white head, which leaves pretty much nil in terms of lacing.

It smells of sharp, tart white wine, the derived vinegar, a musty funk, sour lemon, edgy wheat grain, and a mild earthy grassiness. The taste is actually a fair bit less tart, but still replete with lemon zest, white wine vinegar, crab-apple, gritty and grainy wheat malt, a soft barnyard funk, wet grass, and an earthy yeastiness.

The carbonation is quite robust, in a mouth-filling frothy sort of manner, the body medium-light in weight, and generally a bit too tart to be deemed particularly smooth, yet an airy creaminess arises over time. It finishes dry, dry, dry, the fruit, yeast, and wheat all colluding and conspiring as such.

Well-rounded in its tart and funky base parameters, and overall, a decently drinkable, and even refreshing at times version of the style - I've not had many chances to try the real deal, so take that with a grain of salt (sounds like something that's actually in this beer). I suppose I should try mixing this as is typically suggested, but for some reason I'm all out of woodruff.
