Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Hazy old gold color with a fluffy white head. Yeasty, doughy malt and lemon aromas. Citrusy and light with sweet lemon flavors. Finishes quick with a dry, musty, lemonade-like fade. Crisp and tart, but needs more substance.

750 bottle. Had never heard of it, but it was on sale, so it went into the case. Cloudy straw golden color with huge head (especially the second pour) that lasted until the end of the glass. Light and uncomplex with a subtle aroma of straw and spice.
