look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

True to its name in color , clear with a fair off white collection of ringside bubbles on top. Lacing is decent as well, somewhat if a scattered marbled look. The taste is a funky skunk malt with a bit of spicy herbal hop bitterness. There's a fermented fruit suggestion in there but overall it's just a good old German brew with a little bite that goes down easy but not entirely quietly. The feel is of a subtle but certain brisk tang for the tip of you tongue on a medium- light bodied brew. Very nice and an understandable flagship.
