12oz pour into tulip.

Fluffy white head 1inch on non-aggressive pour, with long retention and moderate lacing. Hazy lemon yellow.

Mild to Moderate tartness initially, with citrus and light funk. Inviting.

The taste confirms the smell, tartness/sour giving way to the light citrus and funk receding to the back of the palate. Lingering.

Light and mildly sharp initially, dry.

A refreshing light abv offering. Perfect spring/summer offering.

Got from a co-worker who went to the brewery and brought a case back.

A - Bright yellow that is very cloudy from the Belgian yeast. Tons of white head with light lacing.

S - Belgian tartness with lemony scents and some light graininess.

T - Upfront Belgian tartness with that tart, lemony, and grainy/wheat. It is slightly sour but there is some sweetness.

M - light mouth-feel with very high (over-carbed) carbonation. The high carbonation and low abv make it very light on the palate and a crisp finish.

Overall, a solid example of the style but not my favorite style overall. The last example I had was more tart and less flavorful than this beer and I like this beers flavor profile more. I suggest you opt for something else but if you like lemons then this is a good beer but not for my palate.

Really tasty beer. The head keeps growing and growing after pouring. Developed a one inch cone above my glass after a minute or so. Kind of cool. Nice yeasty sourness. I know that sounds gross, but it’s really good. Little bread like taste as well.
