look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: poured into a chalice to a pale and slightly hazy yellow with a small white head that is quick to fade
S: smells of pale wheat malt, and a bit of lemony tartness
T: tart lemony flavor up front with some slight pale maltyness and a bit of wheat. swallow brings some creamy wheat flavor and a slight cracker like malt flavor
M: light with soft and slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: a great beer for a warm day. the tartness is nice and the flavors are light yet still apparent. very drinkable and very enjoyable

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.
