3.01/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: pours a straw yellow to golden honey color. finger or so of a white head with decent retention and a weak lacing. strong clarity and brightness to it.

Smell: musty, light apple skin to lemon juice. salt.

Taste: opens up with a musty and grassy wheat. slight apple skin comes through but lacks much tartness. more fruitiness comes through but weakly and mostly in the form of lemon acid. salt and coriander come in near the end.

Mouthfeel: light, musty, little to no tartness and lacking refreshing qualities.

Overall: has some good flavors but they are way too weak. it really needs a bump in strength of tartness. the musty flavor would be much better suited as the background rather than the main taste.

Poured at The Birch, review from notes. I'm actually not certain of the availability of this offering as I think the brewery is quite new.

Soft white head on a pale, cloudy brew. Nice, subtle sour note with a hint of herbs wafting from the glass.

Fruity upfront with an emphasis on melon, lemon, and even a touch of summer thistle honey. Salty and oceanic notes. I think of crisp watermelon with salt sprinkled on it. Extremely refreshing and flavorful. Nice balance of sour, salt, and sweet. Mouthfeel is light and this makes for a great summer session ale.

Based on the quality and solid presentation of this brew, I think I need to take a quick jaunt up the road to Charlottesville.
