look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a very hazy dark orange/brownish color with a foamy 2-3 finger off white head that was packed with exploding little bubbles as the head dissipated rather quickly and left basically no lacing.

Smells like yeast, clove, lemon zest, banana, husk, wet grass, grains, earthy spices and some citrus notes; seems like a malty sweetness with fruit mixed in, and almost like a sweeter version of a hefeweizen – smells really nice.

Tastes of yeast, lemon zest, banana, clove, husk or vegetables, wet grass, biscuit, beer soaked wheat bread, toasted grains, flowers, spices like pepper and coriander, tea leaf, a little bubblegum and some sour fruit like an old grape or a very soft apple that’s been sitting around a long time; almost tastes more Belgian than German, but either way it has a nice mix of fruit, yeast and mild floral hops.

Mouthfeel is tart and oddly smooth at the same time, with a medium body, mild carbonation that’s fizzy and like a prosecco, and it trails off with a slightly sour dry finish.

Not as light and crisp as I thought it would be, but the aroma and taste make up for the summery lightness that I was expecting. Overall a very tasty and interesting beer, definitely a beer I could session and one I recommend trying...it’s a rare style and any hefeweizen fan will likely really dig this brew.
