From notes taken 04/29/17:

Very pale yellow, somewhat fizzy whitish head. Little smell beyond light honey. Faintly grassy palate, not much for hops. Lighter body, and again, somewhat fizzy. Drinkable, but far from great.

From a bottle, pours as a clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of grain and light malt. Taste is a sweet but unusual malt. Carbonation brings a welcome refreshingness. Sure it's uncommon, but it's totally enjoyable.

It has a very unique, "sour-vanilla" flavor.
