look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Lemony like lemon juice, cloudy but with lots of carbonation, and 4 fingers of off white foamy head.

S: Lemon, lemon zest, vitamin c (non chewable) or aspirin. Belgian yeasts, dill pickle, very light.

T: Lightly sweetened lemonade but without the same acidity so more like a lemon drink but without the sweetness, dill as in the herb, vitamin c or aspirin. Certainly children’s aspirin. Not getting the alcohol which is great for more than 7% ABV.

M: Light body, lots of foamy carbonation, dry finish.

O: Excellent brew. Less is more as far as flavor, alcohol level and weightiness. This is more because of its light feel, less sweetness, dry character, and overall light herbal quality. Bought in Savannah, drank in Cocoa Beach July 10th, 2014.
