look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Milky white suds stack about a finger and a half on top of this brew and dissipate into a cocoa like covering of foam atop this clouded brew.

A sweet and fermented citrus comes off this beer with a tiny bit yeast mixed in as well as a little bit of beer odor at the tail end of your inhale.

Citrus lights up my mouth and slowly moves into fermented fruity yeast leaving the palate wet not sticky.

Mouth feel is good the carbonation is spot on just a little to bubbly at the beginning of this brew.

Would be good with some salted pistachios.
