This is a nice beer overall, and a good introduction to the style, which I'm not super familiar with. Bottle poured into my Lost Abbey Chalice.

The beer has a straw to orange look that is mostly opaque with a fizzy head that dies very quickly. Some bubbles rise to the top after the pour and continue in a more settled fashion as I sip the brew.

The smell has some nice straw wheat malt notes and a touch of wild yeast brett, also some nice fruity almost berry like notes as well. Some grape like notes, reminding me somewhat of a BPA. Overall nice and subtle aroma, wish it jumped out of the glass a bit more but its nice.

The taste is refreshing and hits the the aromas quite nicely: Some belgian farmhouse maltiness, straw wheat malts, a little touch of tartness from the wild yeast that again also brings a fruity flavor to it, some grapes, and a touch of German barley. Overall quite nice and balanced.

The feel is sort of light and very bubbly, it works well with the flavors.

Overall a nice beer I'd like to try again and seek some more examples of.

I drank this from the bottle into a chalice.

The beer pours a bright light colored cloudy gold. It almost looks like its neon. The head is white and rises about 1 finger but fades quickly on pour retention. The lacing is spotty and watery.

The aroma is sharp to start with a nice tartness. It smells just like a granny smith apple. I've even peeled one to confirm this, and its confirmed! There is hint of vinegar and wheat.

The taste is great, nice light vinegar taste that is sharp and has a great aftertaste that makes it no doubt what type of beer this is.

The beer is a little watery, but highly drinkable.
