4.4/5 rDev +12.5%
A: yellow body with hints of light orange. fizzy head that dissipates very quickly.
S: harsh grain, slight barnyard funk, sharp lemon zest, peppery spices, a slight touch of coriander
T: awesome orange peel, lemon zest, slight candy sugar, spice, and yeast. i also enjoy the rich creaminess in the finish
M: much thicker than I had expected and its extremely nice. the creaminess is so damn nice and it lingers on the palate with a touch of funk.
O: simply one very well put together beer. PW is known for their hoppy beers, but this one is terrific too. definitely looking forward to seeing this company continue to put out some awesome brews.

3.6/5 rDev -7.9%
A - Poured out of a bomber into a Matilda glass. Pours with a half finger head that fades almost instantly. Dirty lemon appearance with a satin shimmer. Tons of carbonation.
S - Really yeasty wheat. Definite lime notes.
T - Slight sting (just as it says in the bottle description) but a really nice spice to it. Breaddy but in a good way. Small hint of lime. Fades to an interesting bitter and sticks around a lot longer than expected. The final notes seem almost sour, not to my liking. There's a huge maltiness to it, but one that is much more bitter than usual.
M - Good carbonation level which seems to prefer a colder temperature. Hangs around a bit too much for my taste. Has a great refreshing feel initially but leaves you with a negative sour in your mouth.
O - Interesting. The initial taste is actually pretty good and decently refreshing. The bitterness is the aspect I don't really understand about this beer. Its not sharp, but almost sour. I like the idea of the zing it starts with, but the "exotic spices" it uses seem to be a little too exotic for my taste.
Heed their warning about not pouring the last little bits into your glass, you'll get sediment for sure.
