look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Appearance- Hazy yellow with quick two finger bubbly white head that little lacing.

Smell- Definantly get that lemon grass, a little ginger, kaffir lime leaves, a little pepper, wheat funk, something chemical (not in a bad way). Smells more herbal than it does fruity.

Taste- Lemon with a little ginger heat. Reminds me of lemon ginger tea. A little lime and wheat malts. Thats about it though. Not too much else going on, but it's real nicely balanced. Quite tart too.

Mouthfeel- Medium full carbonation with a big pucker factor. Pretty dry, but easy to drink. Lighter body than Everweiss.

Overall- Another nice sour from Nightshift. I feel that this would actually be a better colder weather beer as opposed to a "summer" beer. Tart but warming, and still refreshing.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours pale cloudy yellow with no head. No lace.

Nose is lemon and ginger and yeast. Smells like a cough drop your grandmother would make you have.

Big tart bite up front. Lemongrass is nice, but runs into a medicinal ginger that is almost overbearing. Nice tart finish with a mild ginger flavor.

Light and fizzy. Good structure.

Ginger flaws this but it is still pretty drinkable.
