look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Has a hay straw and golden colored body with a white one finger head.

S - Funky nose with hints of tart lemon, oak and juicy sweet fruits.

T - Acidic lemon/orange profile, white wine busts through and it has a oak wood finish.

M - Light bodied and medium carbonation. Dry finish and tannic/acidic too.

O - Enjoyable and has enough twists & turns in the beer to make it an interesting drink.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a Yankees pint glass (go Yanks!)

A - Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with one finger of bubbly white head when poured carefully. Obviously much more haze if the sediment is mixed up with it. Retention is only a couple minutes, but lots of carbonation bubbling up continuously.

S - Very mellow nose. Slightly bready with a little bit of citrus.

T - Full of sweet citrus up front giving way to some maltiness and bread-like flavor. Finish is distinctly tart.

M - Full bodied and then finishes nice and dry. I'm glad it's a big bottle, because my palette is left wanting more after every sip.

O - Some farmhouse ales can be overly yeasty or spicy, but this one is a nice balance of fruity sweetness, malt character, and tartness.
