Murky straw color with a white, fizzy head the quickly disappears. Huge chunks of sediment floating around in this one...
Smell is tart fruits and some sourness. Corny/wheaty aroma as well.
Tart, sour apples dominates. Other jammy berries present as well. Same corn/wheat flavor on the back end.
Mouthfeel is dry and crisp, some definite acidity as well. Very nice.
The tartness and unique aspects of this beer make it one which I think I'd only want one bottle (1 pint 9 fl. oz.).

Still a pretty good beer overall. I wish I had caught that yeast on the pour. I'm not typically opposed to ingesting some yeast sediment, but those are some damn big chunks.

Serving Type: Pilsner glass

Appearance: Bubbles float to the top very fast, champagne like. The head quickly disintegrates from the bubbles. Rich golden color. Has a thin viscosity.

Smell: Cider like, citrus, pear, green apple

Taste: Tart, refreshing, a little watery. I taste pear and almonds. Very easy to drink.

Mouthfeel: Very effervescent , the bubbles tingle my tongue a little more than I would like a beer to. The beer feels a little too thin, watery in my mouth.

Overall: I like it. Drinkability is the biggest factor, I can drink this with or without food. A no fuss, refreshing beer.

A - Pale straw yellow with tons of fluffy white head.

S - Hay, malt, and lemon peel.

T - Dry, some faint malt, dominated by a bitter lemon flavor and mouth-puckering sourness. Slightly peppery at the finish.

M - Insane carbonation, like a champagne.

O - A great beer for a light meal or on a hot day.
