330 ml bottle purchased during my recent trip to Vegas. I poured this one into my beer goblet after warming for a few minutes from the fridge.
Appearance: A nice crystal clear golden straw with lots of effervescence. A short white head with loads of tiny bubbles.
Smell: Much bigger than the color suggests. Boozy, or at least aromas that are associated with boozy. Oak and light malts, no hops are noticeable.
Taste: A surprisingly dry tart taste. Lemony in it's puckering ability. A touch acidic, all the while being very smooth. Each sips begs you to drink the next sip. There is a cracker character to the malt component. The little hops are simply for very light bittering. The finish is pretty strong and lasts for a while.
Mouthfeel: The body is light but not watery. The intense flavors easily coat the palate. The carbonation is high and spritzy.
Overall: A curveball of a beer. Very interesting and unexpected, I will be on the lookout for this one again.

330ml bottle. Wide Flute glass. Gold color, crystal clear appearance. White froth creates a close crown & leaves a wide ring on sides. Well balanced aroma profile displays sour citric & wood notes, spices & sugary hues on the backside. Gentle malty upfront is blowed up by sharp & intense tartar flavor. Light body. Soft carbonation. Spiced, dense & sour palate. Fruity touches in the middle resolve in a kind astringency from lemon & grapefruit rounded by memories of grape tannins. Long sour finish yields to a fruity & spiced aftertaste. ABV is just felt as a gentle heat through the throat. Refreshing & flavorful.
