3.71/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Deep golden with amber highlights. Honestly the color reminds me of apple juice. Thin layer of minuscule bright white head. A bit hazy with very vibrant carbonation bubbles throughout. I get pears,apples ,earthiness,and peppery notes with an overall sweetness in the aroma. Mouth is highly carbonated,crisp,and refreshing. The front of the palate is sweet with pears and green apples. I get a bit of tartness in the finish from the souring bacteria which is a good contrast.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

For starters I love the art work on this bottle (received as an extra from @hambone85) which made it peak my interest right away.

Appearance: hazy yellow with 3 fingers of bright white that quickly disappears.

Smell: citrus, yeast, & a little funk.

Taste: just like the smell, citrus, tropical fruit, and funkiness.

Mouthfeel: more carbonation than a lot of other sessions I've had recently m

Overall: I would definitely drink it again.

Serving type: bottle
