I'm a little disappointed with the head which is only rim bubbles. I'll chalk this up to the bar pour. Still there's no lace. The beer is golden and appropriately cloudy.

Traditional sour, wheaty aroma with plenty of Belgian yeast as well.

Pale malt start with plenty of flowery wheat (slightly sweet). There's a good pepper kick from the hop. Thin bodied with a light (almost airy) but high carbonation level.
