Appearance: Poured a hazy pale straw yellow. One finger white foamy head. Very little visible carbonation. Mild lacing.

Smell: Light and sweet wheat malts. Flavors of banana and bubblegum with very mild nutmeg spices. The yeast esters smooth everything out.

Taste: Tastes pretty much exactly like the nose, but with strong banana and bubblegum flavors. A nice light wheat body.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a little carbonation bite, but very smooth.

Drinkability: A very good witbier that is very similar to a hefeweizen. Wonderful in being very mild, but still having strong and pleasing flavors. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

Buy Again? Yes.

Out of a bottle into a wheat beer glass.

Looks very yellow, nowhere near as cloudy as normal wheat beer, but this is not filtered. A good golden color in the light.

Smells wheatier than most wheat beers, but not as strong of a smell.

Tastes much sweeter too. Less orange, more coriander and wheat malt. Easier to drink. Strong Banana overtones throughout, really wonderful.

Pretty good mouthfeel, perhaps a little too watery.

Very very drinkable, will buy again.

I wasn't expecting too much from this beer, picked a 22 ounce bottle up for $1, but after cracking the top off I was greeted with a wonderful scent of beer with a slight spice to it. I was grilling outdoors at the time so I didn't properly pour it into a glass, but it was still a wonderful beer. Crisp and clean. Sweet, with very little after taste. Can't wait to try it again, just wish I could find that price again somewhere.

I didn't know it was organic. Neat-o. Cloudy, pale yellow with a thin white head. No lace but persistent retention.

It's a spicy meatball! White pepper, lemon zest and farmy yeast character stand out. Buttered popcorn and bacon and eggs come to mind.

Taste is lemon, farmy dry hay yeast, and spicy coriander citrus.

It reminds me of Allagash white and that's always a good thing.

Poured from a bottle into a flute. Nice fluffy yellow with a very thin head which disappeared immediately.

Smell - nice zesty, tart lemon and other citrus. Smell gave a real good indication of what was coming.

Taste - slightly tart lemon with along orange zestiness with a nice biscuity taste. Extremely refreshing. I feel that you can drink it very cold which adds to the appeal on a hot day. Keeps you interested and finishes as good as it starts.

Mouthfeel - probably the strongest part of the brew. Great carbonation, yeasty, not too tart.

Drinkability - Goes with a slickness. Actually makes you look forward to a really hot afternoon without air conditioning.

As instructed by the bottle, I poured...swirled...finished...and followed my folly all into my East End Brewing pint glass.

A - pours a light straw color with 1/4 inch of foam that quickly disappeared into a thin layer of bubbles

S - refreshing coriander and wheat aroma makes me excited to drink this one

T - Wheaty, earthy citrus up front, followed by a slightly bitey finish

M/D - Very, very drinkable. I could drink alot of this one on a nice hot summer day, or well anytime. I'm not picky.
