  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: too weaksauce

Visual: Pours clear light apple juice yellow (SRM=3), not much of a head, ringed retention with a medium island, several scattered singular streams.

Nose: sour pukey pineapple. (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: immediate big puckery sour

Mid-palate: (lvl-2-sweetness), manageable pukey funk, acidic lemon juice

Finish: light-bodied/no carry, dry grainy wheat, pineapple exhale

Summary: Very sour half grainy-half lemon taste, the body fizzles out after the sourness dissipates. The taste is too thin for my liking, but I guess they did a decent job for a 3%’er. The taste buds barely broke a sweat, next please.
