Pours clear and very golden, a really nice color. The head is frothy and lingers for quite a while. The lacing also does well.

Right as I opened the bottle I was overcome with skunkyness. I don't know if that's how it normally is, or if my bottle has been exposed too much, but it isn't too off-putting. I kind of like it! After being open for a few minutes and in the glass, it loses some of the intense skunkyness, and lets other aromas come through. I get a faint smell of apples, and possibly oranges.

The taste is a lot better than I expected. I thought the skunkyness would have affected it too much, but it's a beautiful mix of funky flavors with a slight hopped taste on the finish. The mix of funky and bitter goes quite well together.

Overall I'd love to have this beer again, great for a light meal.

A perfect Friday night treat.
Paired well with Fried Rice and Tofu.

The appearance is golden, heady, sediment present.

Smell: The smell was yeasty - I had some issues popping the cap on this one as it was a tight fitted bottlecap. Poured, this one had a bread smell.

The taste was good, well balanced, a little sour at first but then refreshing.

The mouthfeel was good, not overly carbonated, not too thin or thick for this style.

Overall this was a good beer, I bought it on a whim, - the price point is a little higher than my normal window at $19 for a 4 pack - but overall this was a favorable beer.
