Aroma of moderate lemon yogurt and salty oyster crackers followed by a low warming bourbon vanilla and dried white oak shavings. Over time, low mousiness and hard plastic start to show. The aroma makes my mouth salivate from the tart acidity. The beer has a pale golden color that is clear with almost no head retention of off-white foam. The aroma is overtly sour and intensely mouthwatering.

Flavor is a consistent, bright, intense, sour, mouth-puckering lemon drop candy with a low aftertaste of fresh tire rubber. Pleasant effervescent carbonation is matched with overly intense mouthwatering acidity. Acidity and minor off flavors throughout limit drinkability.
