Certainly an improvement on the base.

Pours a slightly hazy/cloudy white with a huge white fluffy head. What's the abv on this?

Smells yeasty with some flowers ... some spice .. and ... a faint tinge of orange.

Tastes like exotic spices (ugh), some peppery coriander, some weird flowers (but not lavender ... I think) along with some citrus rind and a bit of yeastiness. There's a weird citrus/sugar slurry aftertaste.

Interesting. I think they've taken this style about as far as it can go.

Bottle shared by Grant – thanks!

Pours a hazy lemon-yellow color with a white head that leaves decent lacing.

Smells of smooth light malts interspersed with twangy wheat. Also present are good amounts of lemon and orange peel and lighter amounts of coriander and white pepper.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Crisp light malts up front are joined quickly by bright citrus peel flavors. Midway through light wheat comes into play before it’s pushed aside by robust spices that carry through to a crisp ending. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth carbonation.

Overall this is another solid beer from the boys in Placentia. A well done imperial wit that’s well worth a shot.
