look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pours with a fizzy sound, average white head. Fully diminishing. Fair/low amount of lacing. Dark yellow, cloudy, a few particles floating around. Almost no carbonation. Nothing too impressive.

Smell: Sharp fresh, acid, lemon, vinegar with musty, earthy, farmhouse funk. Beneath hides light sweetness and yeast. Fair enough.

Taste: Very light sweet start then fast overwhelming medium sour (lemon zest, vinegar...). Then comes very light funk - must say I'm missing some, hoped there would be more. After the sour part it gets unexpectedly watery, a bit herbal. Medium sour with light musty funk stay in the end.

Mouthfeel: Crisp carbonation, dry, fresh, light body.

Overall: Very drinkable, sour OK, but missing something more, gets old too fast.

Pours a hazy straw orange-yellow with mayhaps an inch of fizzy white head that fizzled out before I could finish typing this sentence. Opaque body sans carbonation. Nose is nice. Not mind-blowing but not repulsive. I'm warming up quickly to the style. Grapefruit is the dominant player here, with assorted citrus in the mix. Lemons, apples, barnyard funk. Supremely sour on both the nose and the palate, though not as acidic as other brews in this vein. Actually somewhat sweet at the tip of the tongue, with bread and apple candy. The sourness doesn't quite have the flavor or the potency I crave, but it's a nicely rounded beer.
