The beer pours a brilliantly clear amber (with careful decanting) and the off white head holds up wonderfully. Nice scent of lemon and restrained funk. Maybe a touch of strawberry in the nose as well. Mostly lactic acid scent.

There is even greater depth in the flavor. Bright lemon mixes with a mineral background. Again restrained funk, but full flavored tart acidity. Lactic acid mostly, with a very mild and restrained hint of acetic. Light effervescent mouthfeel. Very well done.
