4.58/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Orange-yellow glowing body. Unfiltered. Foamy egg-white head with long lasting retention and lace all over the glass.

Smell: Wheat. Fabulous estery divinity. Bananas, citrus especially lemon and even orange. Bubblegum and coconut.

Taste: Dry grainy fruity and floral blend of wheat and nice noble hops. Slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Cooling and refreshing. Wondefully balanced example of the style. Light spritzer body. Stays tasty even as it warms.

Overall: An amazing example of the style. I find few flaws with this beer. The price is good. A world classic. I wish it was more widely available. I think everyone would drink this.

Serving type: bottle
