Not my favorite from RR. A little bland without fruit incorporation. Wish they used lacto and pedio for a sharper bite.

This pours a hazy white good with cottony white foaming.
There's a lightly lemony note to the aroma with a slight wet hay character.
This light funk comes out further on the palate, with a Bretty lemony hay flavor that doesn't overpower in the least. Utterly fantastic. I had this on tap but would love to see what some age does to change it further.
