Gold in color with a fingernail of off white. The aroma is of pale grains, light bready notes, oats, and pale wheat. I'm tasting light sourdough to chardonnay breadiness. Pale wheat is also in the taste profile. The mouth is moderately carbonated, crisp, and refreshing.

S: aromas of mild fruity funk, wet wool, over ripe slightly bruised fruit, some berry and a faint hint of honey.

L: hazy peach generating very little head. It has a champagne-like effervescence and initial streams of fast rising bubbles quickly disappear.

T: It starts with a big tart berry lemon attack with traces of apple. The sour flavors are moderate to moderately high, the funk is moderate, the wheat is moderately low with the balance to the tart. There are no enteric, smoky or cigar like flavors. Ii is a touch vinegary. There are no hop flavors or bitterness and no cheesy hop flavors.

F: The body is medium light to light and the carbonation is medium high.

O: This is a very refreshing and flavorful drink.

This beer pours a brownish gold with a large fizzy head and bib bubbles. The aroma has dusty soilbarnyard, sour orange juice, and apple cider vinegar as components. The flavor is bright and semi sour, with tones of apple cider vinegar, and dusty barnyard qualities. The mouthfeel is light, tart, and boldly fizzy. Overall this is an awesome beer - refreshing and bold, and utterly enjoyable.
