look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to Calvin (ApostleBrewing) for this goody, shared with rudzud and others.

Almost no fizzy head, clear yellow pilsner color.

Nose toasty wheat, light sour lemony grass thing, light musty earthy.

Taste stats with light lemony grassy flavor, toasted wheat, grassy hay light, earthy slightly sour funky, bready, light mineral, little watery. Finish is dry and light bitterness, little funk and sour wheat, bready, little sticky.

Mouth is lighter bod, little watery, very little carb.

Overall not bad but not what I expected, little watery, decent sour and more toasty wheat.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this bottle.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice lightly hazy golden hue with almost no head, no lacing.

S - Aromas of light wheat and faint sour notes.

T - Taste is very nice light sour and funk, subtle fruitiness, gentle wheat. Very stiff and subtle.

M - Mouthfeel is very nicely carbonated.

O - Overall I enjoyed it, very soft and subtle.
