Nevada

3.93/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 ml to a snifter, no bottle date

Pours a cloudy yellow/ light tan (5% trans) with a finger of while foam that died down pretty quick. Moderate carbonation stemming from the sides of the glass with some yeast settling on the bottom

Smell of tart vinegar, lemon grass and a touch of apple and citrus, wheat malts, a good amount of funk. Pretty simple, yet pretty good

Taste is upfront sour lemon, followed by a blast of funk and light wheat malt, and finishes with a nice sweet wheaty apple after taste

Feel is a moderate/strong sour with an incredibly light body. Finishes a bit wet, very clean and crisp

Overall impressed given the abv. Nice light sour, not a bad deal for $8. Very ideal session bier

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.
