Growler at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a cloudy earthy dull yellow with an off-white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has earthy wheat with a light tart lemon note. Flavor has a light lemony tartness but is mainly full of earthy wheat.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Growler in the hotel room while wrapping uo RBWG 2014. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, creamy head. Mild lacto tang in the nose, hints of white peaches and lemon. Light sweet flavor, assertive tartness, lots of citric lemon bite. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Clean, fresh sour lemon finish, slight metal and salt, a bit of tongue-blister, light citrus sugars. Moderateky dry. Very refreshing.

Emeister84 (918) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Aromas of lemon, chalk, tart strawberry, apple and cereal. The complexion of hazy lemonade, not much head. Tastes tart, almost cider-like. Light-medium body, low carbonation, tart refreshing finish. A beer that drinks like a dry, yeasty cider.
