Pours a quite pale straw colour. Head is white and looks like finely whipped egg whites. Would like more texture to the head, but lace is nice and latticey. Bit of cloud. Looks great.

Smells tasty and funky. Nice acidity, with a touch of organic barnyard and sweaty cheese. Nice vinegary tartness and lemon as well - all wrapped up with a touch of sweetness for comfort. Very nice.

Taste has far less of the funk. Lighter, with light malt notes upfront and a touch of wild astringency but then it's all hops - not in a big way, but it just tastes herbally bitter, with a twist of balsamic in there - lemony, slightly flaxy and some soapy notes late as well. Not quite the mix I expected, but drinkable and pleasant.

Decent body, although there's a touch of sharpness midway. Ends nicely.

A bit of a confused beer. Funky at times, bitter at others and always very pale. Overall, I quite enjoy it but it's not quite enough of one thing or another to excite me.
