look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

LOOK: Opens with a vigorous pop. Pours a clear straw color with a large soapy head. Retention is good and it laces the glass.

SMELL: Aroma is lactic and bready, a bit sour smelling, like in certain white wine. It actually does have a wine like perfume.

FLAVOR: In the taste, clean malt, wheat, yeast and hops with a lactic twang on the back end. The lactic acid gives the beer a lemony note. Light coarse hoppy bitterness, the brew has more of a sour bite than a hop bite.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied, stinging carbonation, slight dryness. There is a bit of mineral/metallic and sour in the finish.

OVERALL: This is a very good example of the style. Wheaty, fairly sour, crisp and refreshing. Has good character and makes for an enjoyable drink. Though in the depths of winter at the time of this writing, it makes me yearn for a few of these in a cooler, outside in the summer.
