3.83/5 rDev -6.8%
Bottle poured into a tulip
a: hazy straw yellow with looks to be lots of carbonation. Large head that goes away
s: kinda of sour, some funk, straw, slight barnyard smell which isn't off-putting
t: sour lemon and lactic acid, some sweetness
m: tart, bubbly with a dry finish... enjoyable on a hot summer afternoon
I like this beer and wish to try more in the style. This is refreshing in the heat.

The beer pours a very pale yellow, almost a chunky white with a small, half finger’s width head of tiny bubbles that fizzle away slowly. The beer’s head leaves a lacing of thin sheets on the glass. In body the beer is deeply hazy and cloudy with plenty of bubbles racing up through the glass. On the nose, the beer smells clean and lightly wheaty with a very light hint of tartness on the nose. The smell is not really overpowering, and is quite one dimensional. On the tongue, the beer tastes lightly tart with sweet bready wheat. In flavor, the beer begins as tart citric lemon/lime, which quickly moves into creamy wheat bread flavors and then wheat flakes. The finish is citric lemon tart and lively like Sprite in the mouth with and the aftertaste is light to non-existent with just a touch of wheat flakes. In the mouth, the beer feels light in body with prickly, soda-like carbonation that scrubs the tongue. The mouth is left full of acid neutralizing saliva and a light tingle from the carbonation. Overall, this is a nice light beer that is thirst quenching, but begging for a syrup or something to be added to it. This is a beautiful canvas beer to be experimented with, and is refreshing to drink, but rather one dimensional. I think it is great that they are recreating this style with historical accuracy, but personally, I think this beer needs something to add some zing to the taste. A great beer to add things too.
