Reviewed from long-standing notes. Poured from 32 oz. crowler into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Very hazy yellow, average carbonation, and a one finger white head that fades pretty quickly.

S: Tart and tangy, with lemony citric acid, wheat with mild grainy character. Citrus-forward hops.

T: Tart, citric, lemony, plus orange and grapefruit hops. Cracker malt with a bit of huskiness near the end. Quick finish with lingering citric acid.

M: Light-bodied, good carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: I like this one. Not overly funky or anything, but it was solidly made.

Very odd beer. Sour and tangy. Lemony. Odd fun. Faded hops. Kind of resiny. Sour radler like. Really tough to rate.
