12oz bottle pours slightly murky opaque deep gold to copper with short lived off white head. The aroma offers up some sweetness, mild fruity apple sweetness to dried apricots and then a sense of earthy wheat. The taste has a bit of prickly carbonation, maybe to go along with the name, and it pulls up sweet malts, a vague fruity sweetness and then it moves quickly into a modest fruity to earthy to ‘interesting’ sort of tartness. It seems earthy almost gravel and then light skinned like fruitiness and then some tartness and maybe a lime like quality. Neat stuff. I think it is certainly worth grabbing a bottle.
