4.06/5 rDev -0.2%
Look: pours with fizzy, huge, relatively thick, white (with subtle yellow hue) head. It has a fast breakdown via forming big bubbles and breakdown of those. Sticky, medium slow, random retention, lots of random sticky lacing. Leaves a big foamy mountain on top. Cloudy, slightly darker yellow with a bit of orange hue.
Smell: Acetic acid at start, ripe lemon note dominant, also some tropical fruits (ripe mango). Subtle funk with hay and bit of grainy sweetness. Quite fresh and inviting.
Taste: Light-medium sour start, not aggressive, citrus (lemon zest mostly). Grainy pale malts in the middle then come an interesting redcurrant spike towards the end of the middle - very nice. Fine leathery funk (doesn't go into the barnyard zone) covers the middle and ends with light-medium sourness that stays and stacks up in the after. Also light hay bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, dry with lively carbonation - nice and fresh.
Overall: Light, fresh and interesting enough. Too bad it's kinda expensive, would pour gallons down my throat in this summery weather.
