Crystal clear and golden yellow in color. This is very well carbonated which means the one finger white head had some staying power. This is a very attractive beer.
The aromas coming from this beer are very strong. I smell grapefruit and wheat and these aromas linger till the beer is gone. As it warms I'm able to pick up some ester aromas which I assume is coming from the yeast.
First is bitter grapefruit hop flavors followed by the wheat flavors which are more toasted and bitter than sweet. It does finish with a nice lemony note which is quite pleasant.
The beer is thin bodied and crisp. I've got the bitter hops up front with the toasted wheat to follow. As it warms it seems to sweeten just a little and then I get the dry lemony finish.
This is an amazing beer. It took me awhile to finally get a taste and it was worth the wait. There is no doubt in my mind that that I will pick this up again and again, if of course I'm able to find it.
