750ml bottle poured into a HF stemmed glass
cloudy straw yellow, opaque, no lacing and the retention of the initial large white fizzy head is minimal.
smells like green apples, pure lemon juice, lactic acid, sour grapes.
Taste is very sour. Lots of acid. Green apple bite chased with sucking on a lemon. Not much sweetness to this at all. I like the sour but there is basically no complementing flavors. The wheat backing is there but isn't very loud in the setting of brash acid onslaught.
Feel is light modied with high carbonation, crisp and very dry, puckering, good for a hot day.
Overall I'm bumping this up because when mixed with a fruit beer like Rubaeus, it is actually very nice. Perhaps a fruit syrup mixed with this, as in traditional for the style, would make this a more complete beer.
