L: murky pale yellow, like pineapple juice, very light shade of yellow (SRM 2); pushes up about a finger of white foam; no sticking or lacing but keeps a bright collar of white foam; looks like it might clear over time

S: earthy fruit peels, grapefruit peel; as it warms a tropical fruit aroma pokes out, starfruit or pear ... perhaps a pinch of kiwi ... never as sweet as mango and always understated; just a pinch of something tart or farmhouse sour in the background, but when I say pinch I mean the tiniest of notes, for it's not actually sour ... just that little hint of the tart farmhouse aroma, perhaps just a little extra yeast

T: like the nose, starts off quite earthy, almost like a farmhouse ale ... tangy if not tart ... and quickly the malt backbone comes forward, some biscuity sweetness though very light; light tropical fruit flavor shows up as it warms, perhaps kiwi ... super light and a bit hard to pick up but teasingly tasty

F: medium-thick, really fills out when the carbonation sets in, and slightly ale slick; still, it's not too heavy ... in fact, it has a cool way of starting off light and almost watery then settling into a solid midweight; well-made brew

O: pretty cool beer and big points to the brewer for delivering a slightly different spin on the style; not overly hoppy but also not a mushy mess of malt ... unique and tasty yet understated with different flavors sneaking in and out and all of them always tame
