A-pale cloudy yellow with a thin white head
S-crisp wheat malts and lemons. very light smelling. smells like a Sam Adams.
T-comes in with tangy wheat malts. the lemons come in, but its not the good lemon flavor, its more the flavor of the sour lemon seeds...not exactly a sought after flavor. the flavors are light and oddly bitter. it takes awhile before the after-taste comes in. it is a decent spicy flavor but is unfortunately paired with the weird lemon taste. this is a pretty awful beer.
M-medium carbonation with a watery finish.
O-i like sour beers but this has a tangyness to it that makes this one difficult to drink in my opinion. i can see how this might be up some BA's alley, but not mine. this is one of the worst offering of the style that I've ever had.
