bright yellow in color. Fairly hazy in appearance. Lemon, lime, some Brett funk and simple grain malt. Some minerals. Light, bright and effervescent. Very dry, short finish. Pretty good.

Slightly acidic, lemon refresher. Put this right up there with any other oak aged wild. Add to the fact that it's only freaking $8 and it may be the steal of all beers. Super impressed, would buy anytime I could find.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a short bright white head that has good retention properties and hardly died down, also leaving lots of specks of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lemons are present in the nose along with hints of yeast.
T: The taste follows the smell and is both lemony and yeasty. There is a slight amount of sourness, particularly as the beer warms up.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with hints of dryness.
O: The light-bodied nature of this beer makes it very easy to drink. It also has refreshing properties.

Serving type: bottle

This one pours a fairly vivid and slightly hazy orange, with a persistent white head, and a good bit of lacing.

This smells really nice, it just stinks of that weird funk I love in Plan Bee beers- like a dirty farm yard, old hay, lemon, and perfume, with lots of citrus.

As the aroma promised, this is delicious. It's very citrusy, with a drrrrrty funk- perfumy, floral, grassy, and stanky, maybe even a bit of sulfur. It's all good, though- it's superbly drinkable.

This is light bodied and highly carbonated. It goes down very easily.

It seems like they want to make this a flagship beer for them, and I'm all about that idea.
