3.68/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

The clouds yellow color does not hold a head long. This first one I was served can with not head and little lacing, but the waitress got hungup. The second came a little quicker and there was a bit of head that was gone very fast.

The smell and aroma is very sour. Normally it is served with a shot but I went against the flavor shot. The wheat hangs in the aroma and taste, but man is this sour.

It tingles and hangs in the mouth, but I wouldn't call it very drinkable. The sour flavor slows you down, but that doesn't mean you can't have more than one. You just need to take your time.

Pennsylvania

3.83/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

On draught into a goblet, no syrup.

A: Pours a pale and clear golden, with a thin white head that stays as a constant ring.

S: Smells musty, biscuity, and has bits of lemon.

T: The taste is sweet, tangy lemons and oranges up front with sourness and tart in the middle. There's a bready finish that sneaks up at the last moment with some great sourness that loves to stick around.

M: Light and slightly astringent with medium-light carbonation.

D: Very refreshing and low in ABV, so it's sessionable.

This beer may have been better enjoyed during the daytime, not 11:00 at night. I wasn't ready for the tartness. Too bitter. Everything else was good about it: appearance, smell, mouthfeel. It smelled sweet enough and looked pale yellow. I thought it was going to taste more like a light, sweet hefeweizen.
I can't say I recommend it, but if you want to try it just be prepared for a strong sour experience.
