12 oz can dated 24 July 2013 served in a pint glass.
Doesn't look very good, being a murky yellow brown that had no head after a few minutes.

Also does not smell appealing, but the flavor is actually rather good. The nose is definitely tart but still did not prepare me for the extremely tart flavor; about half as tart as lemon, perhaps. Quite salty, even for style. Unfortunate touch of vinegar.

O: very tart and interesting beer with one of the more extreme divergences I've encountered between smell and taste.

Served on-tap at The Gingerman in New York, NY

A: Pours an extremely hazy pale straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and just a hint of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a medium to large patch of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed

S: Light to moderate aromas of tartness/sourness, lemon citrus, wheat, and light amounts of spiciness. There is also a faint amount of saltiness (like ocean air) to the overall smell.

T: Upfront this beer is quite tart but not so tart as to be difficult to drink - there are moderate elements of lemon citrus and wheat present. Just following the initial tartness there is an underlying saltiness along with some slight faint hints of earthiness/spiciness in the background. Overall, very tasty.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp with moderate to significant amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Very easy to drink and extremely refreshing, especially on a hot summer afternoon. Definitely a stand out example of the style and one I would gladly have again.

Thanks to Chris. Pale blonde. Lightly hazy. Nice and tart. Light wheat. Acidity is great through the finish.

Picked this up in Fort Mill

Pours a slightly hazed & effervescent straw color with a pinky of eggshell colored head. Stays effervescent, okay head retention & lacing

S: Sourness, wheatyness, lemon rinds

T: Sourness, dryness, tartness, & saltyness up front. Saltyness & tartness, lemons as this warms. Finishes tart, salty, & citrusy & very refreshing

MF: Medium body, lively carbonation, acidic

Drinks too easy, a good a take on the style as I've had. Would buy this all the time if I could
