Pours a huge, fluffy white head with tons of sticky lacing clinging to the glass and impressive retention. Brew is a lively, hazy pale lemon yellow.
Extremely tart and musty aroma. Smells of light citrus, funk, hay, candi sugar, banana, and earth. Light, delicate, but not subtle. Inviting.
Flavor is lighter and more restrained than the aroma. Some musty funkiness right up front, mingling with light, creamy wheat. Citric acid - lemons and lemongrass, and a hint of peel - follows, with sharp tartness, washing over your palate.
Light, bright, sharp, refreshing. Fair amount of sting, but it's welcome in this presentation. Very lively. Extremely short finish for the bulk of the flavor, although there is a lighter lingering stickiness.
This is an excellent, excellent beer. It's exactly what you want on a warm Summer day. It strikes me as a very low ABV wheat-based tart Saison.
