Mildly hazy, pale yellow body; lots of fast rising carbonation; thin white head. Somewhat fruity aroma; rhubarb and green apples; powdery yeast notes. Mild malt flavors infused with fruity esters, much like the aroma; tart with an acidic twang. Light to medium body; somewhat fizzy and effervescent; mostly dry finish.

A decent, generally well-rounded farmhouse ale. It's a little rough around the edges but does deliver a nice variety of flavors and treats to the palate.
