  • Pours a straw yellow color with a very active fine bubbly white head. Head dissipates quickly leaving just a thin layer of foam on top. Very little lacing.

    Aroma is light slightly sweet and tart. I am getting some lemon and a hint of peach and yeast.

    Taste is sweet on the first sip. Some sweet mild fruit type flavors as well as a bit of yeast which works into a tartness that follows into the finish. Leaves the palate with a tartness that is dry and slightly chalky.

    Light body with light to medium carbonation. A very crisp clean beer.

    Overall a pretty good beer. It's different, but refreshing and enjoyable. I really like the tartness on the beer. Worth a try!

  • Poured slightly cloudy with a huge, virgin snow white foam. Decent retention but not great. No lacing.

    Aroma is of peach, slight lemon, and sweet malt.

    Flavor starts off with sweet malt followed by some yeast and huge tartness that takes over the beer (true to style) and finishes with some grain/bready flavors.

    Light body and carbonation collaborate for a crisp and refreshing beer.

    Truly a unique style and this beer punches your taste buds with a pack of sweet tarts. Yummy if you don't mind something different. Enjoy.
