Wow. I will come right out and say it - this beer blew me away. I had pretty high expectations going in - and this surpassed them.

Poured a beautiful hazy golden color. Very bright and refreshing looking. Some sediment visible but barely.

Smells of delicious fresh hops, some alcohol, and citrus fruit. Very pungent and flowery. Almost a sweet-tartish smell to it as well.

Taste is incredible. Wow. Super fresh tasting - definitely a presence of pine and grapefruit. I pick up some bitter tea tastes as well. Truly complex and delicious. Awesome.

Mouth-feel is spot on for the style. Alcohol burn can be slightly detected but is pleasant.

Wow. I love this beer. This is up there with some of the more mainstream favorites such as Heady Topper and Pliny the Elder. Incredible beer. The fact that it is fermented as a lager adds a level of crispness that I find amazing.

Well done. Well, well done.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Strong haze on a bright apricot wheat body. Pure white, fine bubbled head has nice retention and awesome lace.

S - Light nose, but what's there is really nice. Lemon pith, parsley, white bread, and old wood tables.

T - Bread crust forward flavor profile with lemon zest and light parsley highlights. Touch of tangerine in the center.

M - Super smooth, slightly slick, medium frame.

O - Nice, smooth, well integrated, and easy drinking. Not sure if it's quite top 250 material though.
