A: poured into a weizen glass to a slightly hazed deep yellow with a three finger dense and rocky head that retains well and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of wheat, corriander a little lemon zest, some yeasty notes and a little tartness
T: taste is a little lactic tartness, some fruitiness, some wheatiness, slight saltyness, some corriander and lemon zest. swallow is wheat, more tartness, corriander, and some yeastyness
M: this beer is light on the palate with prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: this is a pretty good beer with good flavors and a nice complexity. I don't know how true to style this beer is but this doesn't seem to have any obvious faults and it seems to hit all the marks.

Im not super familliar with the style but I feel like all the flavors work very harmoniously. Effervescence dances on the tongue. A very light head that dissipates quickly. The lemon Verbena, salt and corriander all work very nicely together with a very strong wheat finish.

Extremely milky and cloudy strawish yellow. Has a finger of white, frothy head which disappears quickly. It laces all up and down my DFH sniffer, but quickly runs back down. Really is just too milky colored to make it great.

Aroma is full of funk, lemon, and sea salt. Final aroma is stew and nutty dough. Overall it's bright and tart, but sour funky notes are there. Also notes of minty basil soon develops.

Wow. I coughed on the first sip. So much flavor: initially it's a punch in the mouth of funk and dough, followed by tart and dry sea salt, and eventually sour lemons that taste a bit green. Aftertaste is dough and straw filled. It finally balances out, most the tartness and sourness is subdued, leaving a salty, doughy, lemony, and vanillay deliciousness.

This thing is tart, sour, funky and full of carbonation. My mouth can't feel anything at first. I will say, for what it is, it's initially crisp. Eventually it becomes a lighter bodied, chalky and a very dry beer due to the lingering salt.

This beer is in your face, especially for being so light in ABV. It's full of highs, lows and I don't knows. But what I do know is it's interesting enough that the bottle will be gone quickly. That's kind of what counts right?
