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

Look: Pours with huge, creamy, medium sized bubbles, light off-white head. Fast, good retention with sticky lacing coming down. Creamy, very thin, thick layer stays on top, leaves lots of lacing. Very cloudy, dark yellow with light orange hue.

Smell: Light to medium lemon, apple sour. Subtle, but fine leather funk - makes it warm and fuzzy. Fresh cut grass, bit of hay, also some light tropical feel.

Taste: Starts with light lactic sour, goes to very light, bread (and light burned crust) middle, missing a bit of malt character here, but ends with a pleasant and satisfying finish - light noble hop bitterness with medium sour. Funk goes down a bit, but more pineapple and some medicinal notes.

Mouthfeel: Light body, crisp and dry - very fresh.

Overall: Light and fresh, complex enough, too bad its too expensive for a go-to beer on a hot summer day - that would be it's perfect niche.
