Poured from a bottle into a weisse vase, the beer is a slightly hazed, vibrant, bright, goldenrod coloring with a slim, filmy white coating on the surface. Aromas of toasted grains and a surprising hops presence. Bitter and slightly resiny on the nose, which is a nice change of pace. Flavors are definitely hop-centric, with a green, peppery, bitter influence overshadowing a subtle toasted grain backbone. A little unbalanced on the palate. The aftertaste is light, crisp, and clean, with some citrus influence on the green hops characteristics. Crisp, light, and slightly drying finish. Very tasty.

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - chill hazed golden color with a white head that thinned out but still left waves of lacing.

S - tropical and citrus fruits with some earthiness in the background.

T - full of tropical fruit and citrus, it's sweet, it's tart and it's all held together with a solid malt backbone.

F - crisp, light and refreshing.

O - one the better examples of the style done organically, cool!

A - A touch hazy yet bright yellow bodied. Head is as expected with some good lacing.

S - Nothing mind blowing just a good wheat profile, lemon zest, and mild hops.

T - Wow that's good. I really like the balanced between the lemon and hops with a great wheat body.

M - Session ale indeed. Too bad I only had one.

Overall I may just get this again. Organic ales kick ass.
