Pours a hazy straw colour with an interesting green tint. A finger of fluffy white head that fades fast.

Smells of lychee, peaches, guava fruit, maybe a little pineapple and some slight floral notes too.

Tastes sour and tropical with that guava fruit and some sour nectarines. More tropical fruits as well but I cant pick them out.

Light body, medium-strong carbonation.

Really nice stuff. Really appreciate the abv too. I can have this with dinner and attend my kids school function without guilt. ;-)

Bottle shared by Umberto tonight, thanks dude!

This pours a murky, almost glowing light peachy color, really interesting color, with a fizzy half inch head, and no lacing.

This smells fantastic, tart Smarties candy aroma, citrus, grapefruit, and a little bit of lacto and funk.

How in the world is this only 2.3% ABV? It's insane, so much flavor packed in to such a small package. This goes down like sour hoppy water. The hop treatment here is really nice, a bit of grapefruit and citrus, a bit of earthy funk, which would seem to the Simcoe acting out, probably. There's a really nice tart bite that's not too intense, but makes you thirsty for the next sip.

This is light bodied, and super crushable, with a very crisp mouthfeel.

This is super delicious, and redefines low ABV beers for me.
