Pours a hazy lemon yellow with ample white foam. Aroma is spicy yeast, citrus zest, sourdough, and lemon meringue pie sweetness. Palate is lemon, orange, coriander, clove, and a touch of yeasty funkiness that approaches brett. More lemon meringue sweetness followed by a dry and bitter finish. A strong yeastiness persists on the palate along with an acidity like weak lemonade and a hoppy somewhat herbal bitterness, although the overall effect is much less hoppy than the IPA designation would suggest. More of an extra sour and bitter witbier. Refreshing and sessionable.
