Sample at B spot, Auburn Hills. Pours light lemon hazy color white head. Aroma is sour funk, lemon, hay, some Belgian esters, sort of a white wine oak quality. Flavor is sour funk, not too acidic, Belgian golden ale notes. Sort of a blonde ale with sour notes feel. Aroma is great, but flavor is a bit more bland than I’d like. Still quite good.
