3.75/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a fizzy head; the retention was not great though it did leave a smattering of foam spots clinging to the tulip

Smell: Grain and funk, with some vague hints of lemon and strawberry

Taste: Grainy, up front, with acetic tartness building along with the funk; vague lemon and strawberry tones linger, after the swallow; the finish is filled with cheesy funk

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Like all of JK's offerings, this is an interesting beer; I didn't care for it as much as many of the others I have tried

Thanks, RobertH50, for the opportunity
