This beer has a big, bright white head, merangue head. It sticks around and leaves a good lace. The beer is a light, hazy, yellow color, the color isn't that nice but I'm finding it oddly appealing.
The nose is hefe-like, but mustier. Lemon and banana, faint spice in background, wheat, nutmeg? Reminds me quite a bit of Hoegarrden in taste. It is bright, zippy, yeasty, with a banana undertone. There is a drying, phenolic pfinish. This seems to be one of the most true-to-style US wits I've had I think. It is intensely refreshing and subtle, but I wish there was just a bit moe going on.
Mouthfeel is light and grippy. I could drink gallons of this.
