Massive rocky white head that seems to linger for a dog's age. Pale straw body

Scent is damp hay, vinegar, lemon, and pine tar.

Taste is sour lemon and pale grains. Big Brett. Finishes very dry and a bit astringent.

Highly carbonated and very lively on the tongue.

For an $11 bomber there's not too much to be dissappointed over.
Though it lacks a bit of depth, it's very enjoyable and I'd certainly pick one up again.

Volcanic eruption upon opening.

Pours... absolute foam. Can't see any beer. The entire glass is foam. I've never seen anything like this. After a few minutes I can see a fraction of light golden opacity. The color is good, but it's just a glass of foam.

Smells of Belgian yeast, wheat, bubblegum, actually kind of smells skunky.

Nothing impressing me, weaker tasting wheat beer. Slightly more Belgian but nothing special. Salty aftertaste, like prosciutto. A bit funky and skunky.

Ridiculous amount of carbonation, thin and overly bubbly.

Not a really good wheat beer. Would pass on this in the future without a doubt.

Had this beer as part of a night of beer tasting. 750ml bottle E!047 batch. Claims to be a Belgian American Ale. Using French and American Malts, US Hops but with the kicker being Belgian, English and wild Yeast. This is ever so appearant when poured into a glass. Inches of foam appear unlike any American beer I have had. It paralells Duvel or a Belgian Quad with the amount of foam that lingers after the pour. Way more foam than actual liquid; which is something I happen to admire in a beer. The liquid hangs there as hazy unfiltered golden color. Herbal and fruit but definite unfiltered wheat characteristics.
