Pours a pale yellow with a small white head.

The smell is sour lemons and wheat.

The taste is sour lemons, very tart.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer, sour lemons and wheat tastes great. Will be a great choice for in the summer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a vibrant, bright, gold color with a one fingered pure white head, light carbonation.

S - Tart and fruity with lemons, white grapes, pears, some hints of sour green apple, and a funky twang that dominates the nose.

T - Very tart and borderline puckering, funk dominates the palate. Sour light fruit notes of pears, apples, lemons, some white grapes, and a little bit of cheese funk going on. Lingering puckering tartness.

M - Light medium body with a dry finish but because of the tartness it creates a lot of salivation. Lots of carbonation pricklies on the tongue but still finishes with a gentle carbonated finish.

O - Not my style of beer but nicely done.

Lots of visible carbonation fuels a white head. The body has some haze to it. Leaves some splotches behind.

Pretty pungent wheat aroma. Lemon and some mustiness.

Light and effervescent on the tongue. Not much tartness to it especially when compared to American takes on the style. Follows through with the nose with that citric lemon character and wheat.

Probably the best of the style I've had so far. It's more dynamic than the others, but with less lacto presence.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a golden opague color with a small white head that fades to more or less a lacing of head around the top. Smell of light hay with zest. First taste has a bright lemon sourness that is washed away by a fair amount of carbonation with a clean dry finish. A pleasant funk lightly lingers in the back end. A great example of the style.
