4.33/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

thought it was about time i tried this beer. six pack for $11 at liquor world, porter square, cambridge.

a: orange-y golden. plenty of white fluffy head, which dies down to a thin layer that lasts pretty well, decent lacing. cloudy enough to be seem completely opaque. nice.

s: some spicy yeastiness, apple, some malt, touch of grass, and maybe a hint of orange? maybe that's just my imagination. smells pretty akin to a tripel, actually.

t: follow smell. very refreshing, pretty crisp, apple being the predominating flavor i would say, just a touch of hop on the aftertaste, touch of citrus. i would prefer a bit more hop presence, but that's probably just me.

m: refreshing and crisp, good combo with a nice smoothness / thickness and a crisp carbonation

d: insane.

4.01/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into an IPA glass, or cervoise glass?

Look: Cloudy rusted wheat body. Pure white head with great retention and spots of lacing.

Aroma: A lot of wheat, malts, banana, and even faint strawberry or other tart fruits.

Taste: Very grainy and malty up front. The banana is subdued and there is a pleasant spiciness I find in the taste.

Mouthfeel: A bit bright, carbonated.

Overall: Just absolutely solid.

Serving type: bottle
