Looks like clover honey, hazy and golden. Not much head. Funky, classic lambic aroma with lots of plasticky medicinal notes, ripe pears, dried apricot, a faint hint of lychee, and pleasant, grassy hops. Lip-smackingly, puckeringly acidic and very refreshing. Sour apple, sourdough, white grapefruit... really juicy, relentlessly sour but very moreish and mouthwatering. There's a touch of passionfruit and this intriguing violet-like floral quality in the finish, as well. Not quite 'easy drinking' on account of its acidity, but really very delicious.
