Pours a slightly cloudy lemon yellow with a fine white head that disappears quickly, save for a persistent ring from the abundant carbonation. The aroma is that of a great hefeweizen with a sharpness from the Brett. The flavor is true to the smell, with a clear sourness that does more to balance the malty body than the light hop bitterness. Absolutely adherent to style and with such clean and crisp flavors that the addition of the woodruff or respberry syrup traditional with this style would be a sacrilege. Certainly will inspire a homebrewing batch in a month or so.

My beer guru brought this one over to split. Ourstanding appearance, very good smell, and unreal taste. Would describe it as a sour but lighter. Very easy to drink and very clean on the finish. I really wish we could get more of this style here in Maryland.
