Interesting beer from Grassroots, though at least for me, the sour component was a bit excessive. On the nose, one gets some light spice, a hint of clove and even some malty sweetness, but the lemon sour and light funk really take center stage. The flavor profile is just more of the same, with once again the sour component dominating. Drinkability is pretty good, as you would expect with such low (relatively) alcohol, but this beer also has great acidity as well.

Nice beer that would be terrific on a warm day in the summer.

The beer is hazy and golden with a thick, white head. The aroma offers lemons, farmhouse funk, grape skins. Mild acidity with some citrus notes, floral and herbal notes as well. Light to medium in body. A touch of earth and some lemon rind counter a mild sweetness. Tasty.

Pour is slightly hazed golden amber with a foamy white head. Nose has lots of farmhouse yeast notes with fruity esters. Some lemon and white grape skins. Hints of caramel malt play in faintly. Taste is a bit more sweet, farmhouse yeast up front, soft body, caramel and sweet esters. Fruity and lemony notes play in back with moderate carb and a semi dry finish. Stronger farmhouse notes come out as it warms giving a nice balance and depth.
