Pour is a hazed pale golden yellow with a small amount of white head. Nose is heavily doughy with a moderate lemon character with notes of hop bitterness and some acidity. Taste is sweeter, lots of lemon, a good bit of doughy malt, light acidity, crisp cracker, sweet sugars, butyric acid. Assertive carb, light body, a bit grainy.

From bottle poured into teku glass, Appearence is hazy straw yellow with frothy head that hung around for awhile.
Aroma is light bready malt with citric tartness. Mostly clean lemon aroma that you get from lacto. No hop aroma.
Taste starts with a prickly carbonation with some wheaty sweetness with a wash of the bright tartness mid palate. Mostly getting a lemon peel flavor with some sour apple as well. Finishes with a pilsner malt sweetness that in combo with the citric tartness leaves you wanting more. Hard to tell the ABV is that high on this one except for a fuller mouthfeel than a standard berlinner. Solid stuff from Hopfarm.

Poured a cloudy, light golden body with minimal head and lace. Sour, tart aroma, comprised mostly of some funk and sour, citric fruit notes - can't really get a hold on aroma other than "sour". Beer is light, and yes, sour, but really smooth and never puckering so you always want another sip. There is basically a citric sharpness, think not hops but lemon/orange, with touches of spice and a very minor but pleasant sweetness on the end which gives balance. I guess for this style the sweet edge might turn off some but it was pleasant to me and this is a very enjoyable sour style beer to relax with.
