Poured from tap into pint at yard house in palm beach gardens fl. Pours a super hazy golden wheat color with a finger of head. Very mild aroma of hefe fruity meets flowers. Very delicate flavor...vanilla and citrus with a hint of spice. Really super smooth and refreshing. Great light session hefe as they can get overwhelming but this is great. Nice brew.

Remember, kids, if it's in a can, pour 2/3rds into your glass, swirl the can vigorously to stir up the yeast that settles at the bottom THEN pour the rest. You'll be rewarded with a nicely cloudy beer and a large head.

A: Properly poured so it has a pale gold, cloudy look about it, starting with a big billowy head, but it quickly dissipates and leaves very, very little lacing.

S: Bananas, clove, a touch of red apple and spice, a twinge of malt, a tiny hit of black pepper, maybe a hint of a farmhouse funk from the yeast. More fragrant than I expected, but not blowing me away.

T: All of the above, with a clean lemony flavor added, very dry crackery malts and a touch of clove at the end to finish. But it's really rather subtle.

M: Far too zippy for me, I like a Belgian ale that feels more rich and velvety, this seemed too highly carbonated for my tastes.

O: A standard because it's always fresh in Florida, a great beer to get into Belgian styles, but nothing groundbreaking.
