Pours cloudy golden color eith thick foamy head. Retention and lacing are excellent. Farmhouse yeast and citrus aroma. Citrus taste with farmhouse yeast and oakiness at the end. Mild hoppiness. Oaky aftertaste. Moderately astringent. A very good beer. The wild yeast flavor is still evident as is standard with the brewery.
