Pale tangerine gold glow for body, capped lightly and small with a foamy fluffy head of whiteness. Some very well placed lacing is sketched across the glass in broken drippy sheets.
Aroma is of funky banana, pear, starfruit, and other tiny portions of citrus thrown in to add some nice touches of grapefruit and lemon along with some earthy weizen-like yeast.
Taste is quite deep and candyish with a broad ranging citrusy, tropical tow of dull orange, old banana, starfruit, stone fruit, and pear. Yeastyness is dull yet just peppy enough with a very dull dryness and funky clove and coriander spice to it. Leaves a touch of earthyness as it finishes low ended and dull with a light dusting of yeast and leftover dull oitrus.
Solid medium body, if not more so, quite smooth and rounded, with a boldness of heft in the right places to keep the palate engaged with all the complexity of its yeasty textures and spice while laying the malty groundwork of the pale citrusy stuff.
Very enjoyable and soild Smuttynose stuff!
