look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Hazed golden orange colour, a finger of white head with no lace to speak of. Smell is funky and musty barnyard, green apple and lemon, oaky, lactic and cheese rind, as it warms get a bit of caramel as well. Taste is tart and lemony, acidic with a mid palate puckering sour, fruity toward the finish, subtle lactic notes, oak in the beginning and aftertaste, drying aftertaste. Medium-high carbonation, medium dry oaky body. Really good, was more than impressed with this offering especially at around $4 a bottle.

3.75/5  rDev -4.3%

A-a cloudy golden colour with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates.

S-smells of lemon citrus with some nutty apricot notes...

T-very crisp and sour like a green applish flavour with definite citrus notes.

Mouthfeel is a little thicker....appropriate for the abv.

Overall I loved this beer. Very refreshing would get it again in a heartbeat.
