Poured from a 16-ounce can into a Relic Brewing Co. imperial nonic pint glass.
A: Somewhat hazy, golden orange color with great clarity and plenty of carbonation beneath a thin head of bone white foam that disappears quickly.
S: Funky wheat, lemony spices and herbal, grassy, citrus hops proceeded by lemon zest and minty gum.
T: Tart, sweet and juicy up front with plenty of fruity malt esters thrown in the mix. A tropical, peppery banana flavor grips around mid-palate before breaking with an herbal, tart and drying front of bubblegum esters. The finish is sweet and dry with a lingering hint of tart, lemon bitterness and a wheaty, yeast twang.
M: Light, crisp, flavorful and well-balanced with a dry, yet somewhat puckering tartness.
O: Hell of a quenching, tart summer weizen with plenty of balance, carbonation and light, fruity citrus flavors to keep you going. At 5.2% ABV, this packs a lot of flavor for a sessionable beer and I'd pack it in a cooler to and from the beach for sure.
