Poured out a golden-yellow color with some haze and a small white head. It smelled of lemon, acidity and white wine-like notes. Some sweet caramel, tart and acidic lemon flavors. Crisp and sharp.

Hazy pastel yellow with a dense layer of foam, delicate drippy lacing in the glass.

Aroma has some gentle acidity and white wine traces.
Taste is moderately tart with some balanced oaky notes of white wine barrel. Dry finish with a slight tannic aftertaste. Balanced and drinkable.
Thanks Dan for sharing!
