3.75/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a straw yellow with a strong head and good lacing retention. Active carbonation very visible. Smells of grass, lemons, sour apples, and bubble gum. Lots of bubble gum and malty biscuits notes on the front palate. Mid-palate there is lots of souring. Sour apples, grapes, and lemons. Wheat, grass, and bubble gum. Back palate you get lots of bubble gum, malt balls, and a sour apple lollipop flavors. Lingering funk, horse blanket, and sugar cookies. Wet mouth feel with crisp sour notes. Like sucking on a sour apple Jolly Rancher. If you go into this thinking you have a common Heffenweizen you are going to be very off put. The can warns you this is a farm house ale so while it is a very Heffeweizen based recipe all those banana, wheat, and clove notes are going to be intensified with a spontaneous fermentation the purposely corrupts, sours, and funks the flavor. This is not a mistake-- it is purpose intent of the brewer to let you know what Heffenweizens tasted like before pasteurization. It is a like drinking a dinosaur and in that you get a peak at what used to be for this noble, but now watered down style. Very complex. Very layers in flavor. Incredibly drinkable. Truly a refreshing look at a beer and its farm house origins. I feel like I woke up in a 16th century German farm house and got paid for a good day's laboring by the freeman who owned the land.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This is a crystal clear golden colored beer with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grass and alcohol. The taste is slightly bitter with an unpleasant aftertaste. Not a good beer.

Pours a hazy dark straw with over two big fingers of head. The nose expectedly has notes of both funk and wheat. The taste is not objectionable but neither is it terribly memorable in any way.
