look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - super cloudy, pale straw color. Solid head retention and lacing.

S - citrus, pepper, and yeast.

T - similar to the smell. The peppery aftertaste really shines through.

M - just the right amount of carbonation. A little on the light/watery side though.

O - very drinkable, solid wit. One of my go-to beers.
