Poured from my Growler filled at Joe Canal's Iselin into my Firestone Walker Nonic Pint Glass
Appearance - Pours a hazy yellowish orange with a fairly active tight white head. The head remains and leaves a clingy lacing that extends far up the glass and remains.
Smell - A very limited initial nose with faint aroma of lemons. Nothing overpowering in the aroma to tell you what awaits. The aroma is slightly tart, but in no way overpowering.
Taste - A lite citrus taste with a yeasty backbone, back this very tasty funky beer. There is a subtle saltiness, mixed with the yeasty nature of the beer that balances out the citrus / sourness that is apparent, but well balanced. This is a very flavorful and complex taste profile, but not deep or heavy tasting. A hint of spice which I suspect is coriander, just based on the similarity to other spicing in wit beers. A tang of sourness is apparent, but this is not sour, but mildly so, funky, not sour.
Mouthfeel - very crisp and very tightly and fairly highly carbonated with a yeasty residue, very similar to the residue from the wit beers, or a mild hefeweizen. Almost no bitterness is apparent, except for a slight spicing.
Overall - This is a very pleasant, drinkable and unique beer. The complex yet light flavor profile makes it extremely drinkable, and the subtleness keeps you sipping away. I had this style once before while living in Germany, it is unique, refreshing and definitely worth seeking out. Sixpoint created a unique and drinkable beer and we are beneficiaries.
