12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a one finger white head. Ok head retention and lacing but really nothing that blows me away.
Aroma is almost reminiscent of a Berliner Weise. Grainy with a touch of lemony character along with a bit of spicyness. It is nice but a bit understated.
The flavor is lemony from the beginning with a nice shot of bready grain. Tartness is present throughout but really makes itself noticable in the finish. There is a very light vanilla note midway through but it is fleeting. Slightly sticky finish with a lingering tartness.
Overall, this beer feels like one that would be good to drink lots of in hot weather without really thinking about. It is not too complex but the tartness is an interesting twist. I'll pick it up again once the weather warms up.
