Aroma: A sharply sour character is dominant (moderate to moderately-high). Has a moderately fruity lemony character with hints of pineapple and other fruits. No hop aroma. The wheat may present as uncooked bread dough in fresher versions; combined with the acidity, may suggest sourdough bread. Fruited versions will take on the aroma of whichever fruit we add.
Appearance: Very pale straw in color. Clarity ranges from clear to somewhat hazy. Large, dense, white head with poor retention. Always effervescent.
Flavor: Clean lactic sourness dominates and can be quite strong. Some complementary doughy, bready or grainy wheat flavor is generally noticeable. Hop bitterness is undetectable; sourness provides the balance rather than hops. Never vinegary. A restrained citrusy-lemony fruitiness may be detected. Very dry finish. Balance dominated by sourness, but some malt flavor is present. No hop flavor. Fruited versions will take on the flavor of whichever fruit we add.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Very high carbonation. No sensation of alcohol. Crisp, juicy acidity.
