I had this on tap at Birch and Barley in D.C. served in a small wheat glass

The color is a hazed golden with thick lasting white head. The smell is pleasant with lots of tart yeast aromas with mild sour citrus scent and gentle floral odor with nutty wheat lastly. Mouthfeel is good with tartness present yet not intense and enough to induce a slight pucker with middle tangy and dry with light toasted graininess and medium high carbonation throughout with mostly dry finish.

The taste is tangy as expected with gentle tea-like herbal flavors blending with light toasted wheat and gentle graininess with slight lactic flavors playing nicely with the subtle fruit in the tropical tea blend-Overall a very nice sour wheat ale- great for the style and has enough sour in the mix to keep it interesting.

A: a little pink, and maybe a little clearer than a normal wheat beer, but those are minor detractions from an otherwise nice looking beer

S: I LOVE the smell, but that is not because it necessarily fits the style (rated lower due to this). The predominant smell is tea, but I also get a coconut milk sweet smell as well, almost like a Thai iced tea. I also get lemon at times, and definitely a feel of a deciduous forest in spring (there's a word from junior high)

T: the sour notes come through more than you'd expect from the nose. Grapefruit tart in nature, it is fairly quickly balanced by the leafy tea tastes from the nose. To be honest, the nose us way more interesting to me, but I do like the taste.

M: decently smooth, with some slight puckering from the sour

O: an enjoyable beer. It has a bit of a novelty feel, but that's more in the nose. The beer itself seems pretty solid to me.
