look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

With a vigorous pour I only achieve a inch of off white head. Body is a hazy murky honey tone.

Nose is very dry and funky at the same time. With hints of lemon zest and pixy sticks. Nicely previewing the sour feel to come.

Sour dry funk on the buds is where this beer shines. So crisp like a green apple but with nice dryness and almost a tannin like feel. Really makes the taste buds pucker in a good way. Fruit is not really a player here except for the citrus zest.

Mouthfeel continues to pucker up, and work for the nice sour feel. A really nice sour brew without the overly fruity feel.
