Very tart nose, wheat, acidic. Palate: acidic, lemony, hazy pale straw, head is large and fluffy but quickly dissipates, very highly effervesce, light tart, refreshing, no hops, light fruitiness, light body, high carbonation, no alcohol presence, refreshing.

Still not sure what to think. The wheat comes in as a really strong aftertaste, and I am not sure if I like it or not.

On tap at Naja’s Place in Redondo Beach. Smells funky with some bread. Starts citrusy and sour but finishes with wheat.

Pours an opaque, muddy straw producing 2+ fingers of effervescent, white, shortlived head that leaves no lace. Aroma is wheat, lactic acid sourness, green apple & lemon/lime with a hint of Brett mustiness. Taste is very lactic, thin wheat malt, some citrusy & green apple fruitiness, a little Brett & brine. Fruitiness & brine most prominent in the finish. Afrertaste is tart & salty. I'm not sure that this is brewed with salt as is the case with Gose but it certainly has a saline twang. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with medium carbonation, prickly, crisp, dry & puckering. If you liked Sweet Tarts candy as a child then you will most likely give this a solid 4-5.
