4.43/5 rDev +9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 500mL to snifter
A: Pours a beaming golden body, which supports a semi-short-lived white head. Very little lacing if left, but a small white galaxy of white head remains on the top. I have to give it a 4 just because the body looks so appealing.
S: This is hands-down the greatest beer I've ever smelled. If a spring day could be captured into a flowery perfume, this is what it would smell like. Zesty lemon with hints of wet grass, flowery hops, and a small malt background. Can't get over how amazing this smells.
T: Taste is right-on with the smell. It gives a lemony sting on the tongue accompanied by clove, grass, and floral hops which dominate the palate, but get balanced with some maltiness. Very good.
Overall: Mouthfeel and drinkability are good above average. Mouthfeel is light with a nice amount of carbonation. Drinkability would be much higher, but drinking spring can only last so long. Very excellent beer! thank you to Natasharai for the try!

4.11/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Cloudy brownish-golden in color. Forms a moderate sized, fine-bubble, white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.
S: Aroma is fairly Brett dominant. Tropical fruit and pineapple are mixed with light notes funk and basement.
T: Starts with a light sweetness. Notes of fruit, mango, and pineapple. Then some zesty spice, sort of like lemon-pepper seasoning. Finishes with a mild metallic twang.
M: Medium bodied. Crisp. Mild bitterness. Medium carbonation. Light dryness on the finish.
O: A very nice beer with a pleasant and inviting Brett character.
