Acquired from my local liquor store. Drank out of a King Sue Toppling Goliath teku.

Look: Poured with three and a half fingers of fluffy snow white head, almost entirely transparent with a straw colored body, little to no lacing, lots of fast down-up carbonation bubbles.

Smell: Sour yogurt, sweet wheat, grape skin, fresh squeezed lime juice, unripened pear.

Taste: Light tartness, fruit cocktail simple syrup, white grape juice, sweetened wheat cereal, lemon grass.

Feel: Light bodied, high carbonation with tongue dancing bubbles, very refreshing.

Pours an almost clear pale straw producing 3+ fingers of very finely bubbled, slow to dissipate, snow white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma light malty cracker & biscuit, sharp & lactic in a background of lemon/lime & grass. Taste is lactobacillus sour, lemon-lime & pepper backed by thin grainy & cracker malts. Finishes tart & lively with a prickly carbonation bite, a faint mineral note & a hint of something akin to a freshly extinguished candle. Aftertaste is dry & tart. Mouthfeel is light bodied with intense carbonation, fruity, dry & lively in the mouth with peppery carbonation bite that ligers on the sides & back of the tongue.

Look: Super clear completely see through

Smell: lemon, grassy, earthy, white grape.

Taste: right upfront I'm getting that white grape transitions in the mid palate to tart lemon earthy grassy notes in the finish I get a touch of orange peel and tart white grape lingers in the finish.

Feel: light body high carbonation crisp dry finish.

Overall: I like what's going on in this beer just enough tartness to complement the rest of the flavors. It's a really good beer.

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a mug. The appearance is a bright slightly cloudy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is full of citrus, hops and grass. The taste is slightly tart with a lemon feel.
