3.85/5  rDev -2.3%

The beer pours a hazy light golden yellow with a foamy white head that laces and remains a thin blanketing throughout drinking. The nose is bubble gummy and sweet with some funk, wintergreen, ripe melon, and wheat. The taste is predominantly the same big flavors cast off by the yeast (bubbe gummy once again), which overshadows the beer's slightly bitter, wheaty finish (these flavors could afford to be bigger). This is definitely a light bodied, highly carbonated farmhouse that captures and highlights the near-artificial flavors that can be produced when yeast meets grain , but still has a semi-sweet, crisp, slightly bitter, finish that makes it refreshing and drinkable. I enjoy this beer despite not being particularly fond of the flavors highlighted.

Pours into my Hennepin stemmed glass a slight hazed lemon yellow with just a tinge of orange,a great looking one finger bone white head that settled slowly into a frothy mass.Alot of lemon and orange oils in the nose wich gives off some tartness,mild funk in the background.Dry with a little toasted grain upfront on the palate with a little tartness from lemon-like notes,not much funk or phenols to be found wich I like.Very drinkable and dry with refreshing tartness,awesome summer beer here,my first Off Color beer is a hit.
