Appearance: hazy straw gold with only a ring of head. Lines of bubbles floating enthusiastically from the deep.

Nose: distinct wheaty aroma; sweet pilsner malts with a lacticity. Lemon hop notes and a mild spice trail (coriander, clove)

Taste: surprisingly sweet, though effervescence cuts through nicely. The sweetness is quite fruity: like a blackberry-lime soda. Pils-y and wheat-y. Hop flavor is lemony, which melds nicely the faint acidity from the lacbacillus. Nominal bitterness. The finish is tea-like—herbal and spicy—but a little bland.

Overall: this brew has subtleties and little sex appeal (i.e. not barrel aged, not very sour or hoppy), but is quite a nice sip, nonetheless. It’s likely too sweet: it would be more quaffable if somewhat drier, or perhaps more highly carbonated. Additionally, the lactobacillus may under-deliver, but its subtlety is commendable.
