Served in a Prairie Teku glass.
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator or this one.

A - Hazy yellow/straw color with a finger of white head.

S - Fresh cracked white pepper, damp hay, barn funk, old basement wood, some floral/lavender, dried mushrooms, citrus, bright wheat malts. Gets funkier as it warms.

T - Lemon tartness upfront, grassy bitterness, dry peppery yeast upfront with salty citrus coming in midway. The wheat is blends wonderfully with the yeast creating rustic but bright character. Some leafy herbal hops pop up along with tart green apples and dose of salty minerals toward the bone dry finish.

M - Light weight but some firm texture, zesty carbonation, tart with a bone dry finish.

Exceptionally refreshing beer. Bright and zesty with solid funky yeast characters. Loved this one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - straw yellow that is very light with a thin bubbly head

Smell - very tart and citrusy. not as tart as other CS beers

Taste - sweet up front then a great tart twist at the end

Mouthfeel - well carbonated and leaves a nice dry flavor on your tonuge

Overall - 2nd favorite St. Bretta and quick simple fun beer to enjoy
