4.05/5 rDev +4.1%
On tap at CBC - nicely poured into a tulip...
Crystal clean copper with good lager head (full finger) and lacing - calm for carbonation in body
Austere on the malt side-yeast electricity is there - almost a very dry sour feel
Whooo-eeee that's saaar/bitter. Huge rind bite with a little acidic funk. Slight old-world dry austere yeast presence and bare-bones light malt. With warmth we get some carbonated candi sugar sweetness.
A little on the tighter side but very enjoyable. Sourness and bitter almost silage feel slithers down the palate in a long finish.
Light enough to session, yet complex enough to sip and savor. Quite well-constructed.

Had on tap at the brew pub.
Nice creamy 1 finger head nice lacing, hazy golden orange wheat colored.
Nose nice Belgian golden malts, bit of sweetness, light citrus, touch of straw and light toasty malts, mild grassy and light citrus hops.
Taste starts again with Belgian golden malts, semi sweet, bit of straw and toasty malts, light citrus, hint of Belgian yeast fruit flavors, that goes with the nice hop addition, noble grassy and mild floral hops. Finishes clean with a bit more bitterness and a bit drier, lingering hop flavors and touch of Belgian malts.
Mouth is med bodied, crisp, decent carb.
Overall great, right on with the style, hops stay where they should be and adds nice character, not overboard, and nice malts as well, easy drinking

Pours a clear copper with a slight haze. Topped by a dense, fluffy, off-white head that leaves sheets of lace. The aroma is toasty, fruity in the Belgian yeast sort of way, peppery and a tad yeasty.
There's a sweet, bready, malt backbone. Banana fruitiness appears in the center and lingers into finish, which has a mild peppery spice and light bitterness. Light-bodied and a bit thin, perhaps a bit more carbonation would carry it through better.
Like its inspiration, the very model of a session beer.
