The head is medium, body light and a bit cloudy. It smells hoppy, citrussy, lemongrass. The taste is intensive citrussy, lenongrassy, malty, wheat, fruity, sourish. Pretty good!

Glass. Little cloudy, golden yellow with medium white head. Medium citrus and straw aroma, also noticable very nice basement accents. Flavour is balanced between dry malt base with some woody accents and nearly medium bitterness. You can also taste some tropical fruits and saison-like accents. Light to medium body, smooth texture, average carbonation, finish is medium and dry, aftertaste is light bitter. Drinkability is high, very refreshing. In general really solid, drinkable and refreshing beer. Very balanced, where none of the element overpower others.

A lightly tart/lemony IPA with a nice grapefruity note. Big thanks to Collin or his friend for the share at Zwanze Day. I really wanna have this version again.

Poured from birthday bottle from Quag into a Schiltz chalice: Pours clear straw / golden in color, one finger white head, nice retention. Aroma is grass, funk, a little grapefruit and other citrus notes. Taste is slightly tart up front, lots of citrus and grassy notes, and then a very slight hop bit and lots of Brett funk on the back end. I’m not a huge fan of Brett but this is still an incredible beer. Incredibly drinkable, medium body, awesome.

PhillyCraft (3743) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Old tick, didn’t realize this was a new entry until recently. Bottle shared with Joe. Pours golden yellow with small to medium foamy head. Aroma is heavy on rich brett, but also has a fair share of citrus fruits throughout. Flavor is grapefruit, mango, wood, and florals. Lighter to medium in body with a tart finish.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2014
Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a lazing yellow head. The aroma has notes of lemons, wheat, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, straw, and wheat, leasing to a bitter finish.
