Pours a hazy straw orange-yellow with mayhaps an inch of fizzy white head that fizzled out before I could finish typing this sentence. Opaque body sans carbonation. Nose is nice. Not mind-blowing but not repulsive. I'm warming up quickly to the style. Grapefruit is the dominant player here, with assorted citrus in the mix. Lemons, apples, barnyard funk. Supremely sour on both the nose and the palate, though not as acidic as other brews in this vein. Actually somewhat sweet at the tip of the tongue, with bread and apple candy. The sourness doesn't quite have the flavor or the potency I crave, but it's a nicely rounded beer.
