rich yellow goldness. cloudy lemon yellow center.amazing rising foam head forms a peak almost an inch from the lip of the flute i poured it after being advised to do so on the back of the bottle...very impressed.
sharp grains were my first thought, then lemon peels, something else is underneath,
havent even tasted this yet and i can already tell it's style, has a very nice nose, perky, fresh, something floral under the expected wiess tones.
the silkiest foam ive ever had. breaks down into the first sip, smooth, not as sharp tasting as the nose wouldve lead me to expect, very grainy but still so smooth and refined, heavy on the citral side of things. i see why this is so sought after , as the guy stocking it explained as i held one up to the light to see how cloudy it was, being a wiess id have expected a sharper maybe more sour finish, maybe a bit more dry, but that is just my other wiess experiences speaking.
once that initial crest of foam clears off , well..to be more accurate it doesnt clear at all, it just steps aside and lets the amazing wiess roll thru, but once thru the crest of that, if poured properly, it kind of explodes at the tip of my toungue, leaving grains and a slight maltiness in the finish. the citrus notes of the taste really combine with the mouthfeel to create a very nice back and forth.
as my tastes get a bit more refined from trying all of these lagers and ales, and reviewing them, I find that this brewer in particular has some very creative offerings, ranging from very heavy almost heartburn causing tripel ,to this session worth wiess. i would reccommend this to any fans of wiess. and this brewer. they have a certain something that carries over through different styles, but is always complex, and obviously held to a very high standard of quality. not something i would drink every day, but definatly not one to miss, aside from hoegaarden, which is about on par in quality in my opinion, one of the best wheat beers available.
