Give to me by the ever generous "Huzubendah."

Poured into a Port City glass.

A: Ridiculously cloudy orange, with an Alka-Seltzer-esque quality to it. No head really.
S: Sweet tarts, very mild at that.
T: Totally awesome sour component. Can't believe this doesn't have wild yeast in it.
M: Drying after a mere sip. Great stuff.
O: If someone were to give this to me sight unseen, I'da tagged it as an American Wild.

Appearance: It has a beautiful hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of wheat malts, some tart lemon, coriander and some sea salt.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some tart lemons upfront, wheat malts, some coriander, citrus and a touch of salt.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas.

Serving type: can

A: Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a quickly receding cream colored head.

S: Tart wheat, a lot of salt, coriander, hay and some brine.

T: Umami is a good descriptor here. Sharply tart and salty upfront. A touch of a lactic twang with a backend of light wheat and coriander. Fades into sea salt and just a hint of citrus. Lemon is in there somewhere. Ridiculously refreshing and a fantastic take on the style.
