Looks like a pale or a hefe, smells like a lemony hefe, even tasted like one at first but before I could swallow the flavor was like lemon pine sol. Got down half of it but this was a drain pour.

Poured into a Duvel Tulip. Part of the stamp is on the bottom of the can landed on the ring so it says ?/08/14.

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a full inch of white head that retains well before fizzing away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- The lemongrass is strong with this one. Almost too strong as it imparts an aroma reminiscent of soap. The spices do a decent job of keeping it in check though.

T- Flavor isn't as lemony as the aroma. The wheat flavor is smooth and refreshing as the lemongrass gives it a little extra character. It's alive and vibrant while playing well off the mouthfeel. Citrus burps.

M- Zesty and tingly from the medium-high carbonation with a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I've heard so much about how good this beer is and, although the price tag is quite steep ($16.50 for a 4-pack of tallboys?), it's very good. Crisp, refreshing and not too heavy on the special ingredients.

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: Wheat bread, spicy German yeast aromas, candy sugar, and lemongrass dominate the nose.

T: Spicy German yeast and bread flavors dominate here with a bit of banana before a well-balanced lemongrass flavor kicks in. Finishes clean and bready.

M: Light body with moderate carbonation, this beer is quite drinkable.

O: A good beer, overall, and very refreshing on a hot summer day.
