A azy gold-orange brew attempts to raise a light whitish head that looks a little thin but does have a bit of staying power. It leaves very light, thinnish lacing, but in reasonable quantity.
The aroma is somewhat dry and gently chalky with a light sweet note of white fruits. The yeast certainly does play an intriguing, unusual part in this beer.
The flavor is fruity, more a mixture than just pale flesh, with a firm pale malts base, not as dry as the aroma with some grains underneath.
There's a nip of crispness in a soft, light body with a surprisingly velvety texture. A bit more crispness, particularly since it's a lighter style, and it's an exceptional feel. It's very nice regardless.

A - pours a cloudy orangish golden color. White bubbly head of maybe 1 and a half fingers. Fades quickly to a faint ring. No lacing.

S - Noticeable sourness. Fruity, some apricot maybe strawberry. I don't detect any hop character.

T - Fruity again. Sweet and complex. Tart finish which fades to a malty aftertaste.

M - Light and bubbly. Doesn't really linger.

O - I really like this brew. I think that the sourness (from some stray yeasties, no doubt) really adds to the experience. Easily sessionable. I think I'll go have a couple more.

12 oz. Since this brewery does open fermentations and as such the beers can vary from batch to batch, I will point out that this is from a six pack purchased January 2013 in western PA.

Pours a hazy blond with a white film for a head.

Smells of citrus and mildly sweet wheat malt along with a mildly sour lactic-like note.

Citrus and sugar sweetness with some light lactic tartness.

Medium body with bubbly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

I like the idea of the open fermentation, you never know exactly what you're going to get. This one is pretty good, light and highly sessionable, but could stand to be drier or even more sour. Definitely worth trying and looking forward to more from this brewery.
