Bright hazy beer very foamy great lacing. Smells citrus and grassy. Nearly sour with a yeasty bite. Curious flavoring. Bitter. Unripe grapes and green citrus. Body is medium light. Carbonation has a bite. It doesn't have a flavor profile that I'm a fan if but it's clean and one or two may be decent on a hot day.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of orange citrus, apricot, mild caramel, slightly vegetal. Flavor is mild caramel malt, orange family citrus juice and rind, apricot and grassy hops. Finishes with citrus rind and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light creaminess, nice mouth feel. There is a light Belgian influence here that may be Belgian yeast or very light Belgian spices, but overall n unusual amalgam of flavors that don't quite fit together and a finish that is slightly astringent. In its favor is a nice blend of orange citrus flavors and light apricot. Interesting but doesn't quite come together.
