look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
500ml bottle acquired in Berlin, Germany, and poured into a Guinness pint glass.
A: One finger head, devoid of cream, quite thin and a bit pathetic, with average retention. Clear yellow colour. Rather unappealing, truth be told.
Sm: Slight cream, some strangely sour estery notes unexpected in this style of beer, maybe some half-spoiled vegetable. All of the above considered, it remains strangely appealing.
T: A lemony, estery, souring vegetable hop mess of a beer. There's almost a hint of sugar from sweets (i.e. candy sugar) present, but that can't be. Basically an amalgam of strange soured fruits. Doesn't quite taste on the mark for any style, including the nastier lambics. Built very strangely indeed, yet reliant on the lemon through-flavour to be good. Built decently well I suppose, albeit vaguely.
Mf: Clean, smooth, wet, and refreshing. Matches the flavours of the body to a limited extent. By no means exemplary of the style.
Dr: Absurdly inexpensive and pretty complex for the price, but still not quite worth it all other options from the same store considered. Better options can certainly be had.

A: Straw-colored pour with a small white uneven soapy head. Instant dissipation.
S: Kind a sour maltyness but everything is overpowered by a lemony detergent smell.
T: Sweet, very sweet unbalanced malt is dominated by a citric lemonade that feels very artificial - almost like a cleaning product.
M: Aftertaste is very short. Body is very thin and carbonation is rich.
D: Why bother?
