Visual: Pours clear light straw yellow with no head, soda-like active CO2 streams, big bubbles clinging to the side of the glass.
Nose: tangy filtered apple juice. (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: thicker viscosity, sharp crisp micro-tingly bite, background acidity
Mid-palate: soft sour-tangy, green apple, hints of elderflower, bright numbing acidity, (lvl-4-sweetness)
Finish: thickened throat saliva, green apple tartness, residual dissipating acidity.
Summary: Very good structure, pretty basic apple flavour but with subtle floral nuances. No real bitterness from the hops though.
