This beer was poured unhurriedly into a flute. Lots of swirling carbonation and three solid finger s of thick creamy head. I did actually try to make this an unhurried pour and I still got this maelstrom of bubbles going on. The color is a clear golden body with no yeasty haze. The smell is funky yeast and something that reminds me of fresh fish or fish scale for some reason. There's also a slight cereal or grain smell in addition to a thin hop presence.

The taste is fruity, reminding me of bananas and fresh red apple in addition to a spicy blend of flavors that adds a bit of heat to this. That flavor may also be the yeast, which also adds a kind of bread like funk to the whole thing...something like sourdough. Also I'm reminded of raspberries for some reason. Overall the mouth feel is crisp and not too watery with a consistency something like a wheat beer. Very good, but not as mind blowing the second or third time, but still very well done.
