22oz bottle split with my wife. Served in a Prairie teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator!

A - Glowing orange apricot, with fine bubbled white head. Semi hazy.

S - Lactic and salty minerals, tropical fruit, lychee?, bubblegum, grassy hay, musty wood,

T - Candy tartness upfront, muted pink lemonade, tropical fruit, pineapple, soft caramel malts underneath. The sweetness builds toward the finish while the tartness fades but finishes dry and very crisp and refreshing.

M - Sharp carbonation, light to medium body, crisp and refreshing feel.

Nice balance of sweet and tart both of which are fairly mild. It's not puckering sour but it has a nice tart edge to it. Some woody funk and a nice fruit profile. Crisp and refreshing, a great summer time beer
