This was a hazy golden color with lots of suspended particulate, is can conditioning a thing? it poured with a fast living but short-lived bone whitehead.

Not much of an aroma coming out of the glass, some barnyard grass, a little lemon, and lightly tart grains. Lots more going on flavor-wise. This is incredibly dry overall and very refreshing. Pithy lemons and tart, earthy grains are prominent. There is also a layer of zestier, fresher tasting lemon. Grassy bitterness and light lingering clove round things out. There was more to pick out here, but sadly my glass was empty far too quickly. I don't think I spent 15 minutes on this one. The mouthfeel is (was) light, spritzy, and refreshing.

I'm looking for a case of this next summer.

Interesting beer -- tart, clean, refreshing -- but somehow it feels a little disjointed. Unique with some lemon rind, grassy and mineral notes, and dry and bitter finish. I miss getting a little more from the yeast, given the style. Might pair really well with some fine cheese.

A slightly tart nose joined with light grains and a hint of fruit and lemon.
Pours very light effervescent hazy straw under a 2” white persistent foam cap that produces rich lace.
Palate: Citrusy fruit over light water cracker malt with an assertive grapefruit rind bitter accent on the finish. Bone dry with the lemony tartness and light fruit balancing the assertive bitterness.
Light, refreshing and effervescent – a perfect summer beer.
