I have not had a bad lay-guh-nee-tas yet

this was a little different then I expected after reading the reviews

has a malty-creamier base then I expected it too

my first go around with Belgian yeast

has a copper hue to it with huge head 2.5 finger center pour

a nice smooth drinker that I wouldn't turn down

the A.B.V is well hidden for 7.5 %

has great carbonation and tastes wonderful the hops are there but not over bearing

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Bottled August 3. Reviewed August 22.

A - Sun kissed orange with a cloudy appearance. Billowy 2.5 finger white head that fades and leaves a fat collar and thick swaths of lacing behind.

S - Delicate tropical and citrus notes from the Amarillo hops. Orange, ripe pineapple, and mango. Some sweet honeysuckle and wheat Ritz cracker complete the aroma.

T - Starts with the tropical and citrus of ripe pineapple, mango, and orange. The sweetness follows with honey, bread, and some wheat Ritz cracker. A bit of pine and citrus bitterness on the finish.

M - Rich and well carbonated with a medium light body. Fluid and well carbonated, high acidity despite high bitterness. Very compelling for another sip.

O - Amarillo hops added to a Wheat Ale = delicious and a great beer for anytime of the year. One of my favorite Lagunitas offerings.
