11.2oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow, sparkling almost champagne like with a small white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, biscuit malt with ripe fruity notes. Taste is mildly tart and sour with some Belgian yeast, has a kind of sour fruit slightly vinegary white wine. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation and sweet tart sourness on the tongue. Finish same as taste with some faint notes of malt on the end gives it slight balance. Overall a bit on the sour side yet a drinkable brew none the less.

Served in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House.
Finally getting to try this old acquaintance from back east once again. It pours a clear lemon-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises tart lemon zest, a pinch of coriander, and some rather light and demure cracked wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, with the even tarter lemon dominating all else in a pleasant WarHeads type of way. The body is a rather light medium, with a light carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a tasty sour treat, something you don't necessarily come across every day, but something you wouldn't mind indulging in that often.
