3.25/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a cloudy, straw yellow with a thick white head that fades somewhat quickly to a thin layer on the surface of the beer. Champagne-like bubbles trail up the sides of the glass.
S - Interesting mix of rich, bready grains and a curiously strong sour apple aroma. Just the slightest hint of clove-like spiciness in the background
T - Pale malt flavor shines through more than anything. An interesting bubble gum flavor is also present. Not nearly as much green apple flavor as I would have expected from the nose. I do detect a very dry apple note toward the finish.
M - In my opinion, over-carbonated. But the dry finish makes this a great session beer. Crisp and refreshing.

3.79/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a hazy medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some golden apricot + brassy highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy off-white head that reduces to a small patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of crisp slightly sweet green apples over the top of hints of pale malts and just a touch of spicy Belgian yeast.
T: Upfront there is a light flavor of pale malts with moderate flavors of both sweet and tart green apples. Light distinctive flavors of Belgian yeast adding a hint of fruitiness and spices. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades very quickly.
M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp.
O: Refreshing and easy to drink - a very nice beer for a hot summer day.
