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

A: Opaque golden yellow with no head, no lace. The carbonation is present, but barely visible.

S: Presence of wheat, lemon rind, white grape must, fresh sourdough.

T: Sour does = yum, and this beer is yummy. Not too sour, the flavor reminds me of sparkling water with a twist of lemon. The finish leaves lingering flavors of wheat, biscuits, and crackers on the palate.

M: Highly carbonated with semi-dry body.

D: It's a cool, fall October day, so perhaps this style is out of season. My plans consist of watching a 2 hour Freddie Mercury documentary with my pregnant wife, so a 750mL bottle at only 3% is the perfect match. Enough beer to last the movie, and no unwanted buzz. To sweeten it up a bit I am adding 1oz per pour of framboise liqueur. The beer is a nice representation of the style, but the extra sweetness (as suggested by the bottle) really elevates the beer to another level. This could be a go to for the style, especially at $10 a bottle.
