Pours a clear, pale gold with a frothy two-finger head. Lacing is decent. Nose is light with a hint of yeast and citrus.
Nice tang and lemon flavors predominate. Soft stone fruits liven up the mouthfeel. Yeast funkiness is present but is subtle and gentle enough to not overpower. Hint of orange. Crisp, snappy finish that is balanced nicely. A mild silkiness in the finish, but finishes dry nevertheless. Very interesting interpretation of the style. It has qualities of a a kristalweizen, a lighter saison, and an English-style pale ale; definitely something to look for if you'd like something different for your summer session.
Would be wonderful with a mild cheese plate (think brie) and a crisp dinner salad with chilled shrimp.
