Amazing Beer.

Appearance is a vibrant orange creamsicle that is cloudy and opaque with a nice coarse foamy head that dissipates but retains remnants about the glass throughout consumption

Smell is full of funk and sour yeastiness. Wonderful.

Taste is sour and complex with the backbone from the yeast again.

Great beer.

Hazy, opalescent golden colour with a frothy white head. Aromas of biscuit, some straw, ligt funk, earthyness and lots of gooseberry develop.
Light biscuit sweetness upfront developping a lovely funky lemon zesty gooseberry infused hop bitterness. Effervescent, lightly slick with a well balanced slender yet somewhat pronounced body.
Lasting light dry fruity finish.

Hazed golden colour, 2.5 fingers of white head, good lace as well. Smell is spicy and musty, hoppy and yeasty, bit of fruit, lemony, touch of cat pee and lightly funky. Taste starts out spicy with some musky fruit, faint bitterness, green apples and lemon, funky and very dry throughout and into the finish. Medium high carbonation, medium body, dry. Very solid stuff, incredibly easy drinking and quite refreshing as well.
