Served in a flute glass.

Appearance: this beer pours a slightly darker gold color, not much bubbles off the body. White head though is thick, about a full inch..real nice.

Smell: light grapefruit and but f'n strong hops, very potent and pleasant that you just keep going sniff after sniff.

Taste: Bitter with a hit of grapefruit that blows your tongue away. It is bitter but a light piney feel that helps it go down that much better

Mouth: medium to heavy most definitely. Not the easiest to drink but the real beer advocates will not say no.

Overall: very good and no complaints on my end. Salud!

12oz bottle into standard pint glass.

A - crystal clear, light yellow color. Minimal head with no lacing, but typical for the style.

S - Very mild, but typical. Slight wheatie aroma but very faint.

T - Malty and sugary up front. Clean finish. Wheat comes through but still mild. Not alot of character and the booze is present but not as much as would be expected from the high ABV paired with this style of beer.

M - booze lingers slightly. creamy yet clean finishing. Leaves you wondering what you just drank but knowing it has some alcohol in it regardless.

O - Once again, not a style I would seek out alot. But, for what it is, Lagunitas has managed to make something drinkable. The high ABV is enjoyable though for many it might make this UNattractive as an option. Just can't bring myself to "want" any beers of this nature. Not bad I suppose but not something I would seek out.
