12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-clear, golden color with a finger and a half of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a lacing of bright white, creamy, foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Nicely aromatic with notes of bready, toasted malt and wheat up front, imparting aromas of biscuits and whole-wheat crackers. I also get notes of caramel, black pepper, a touch of coriander, and grassy, piney, hops.

Taste: Very nice, with strong flavors of toasted malt and wheat up front, imparting notes of freshly baked French baguettes, whole-wheat crackers, and un-sweetened whole-wheat cereal. Next comes a touch of home and caramel-like sweetness, but not a lot, followed by some faint, yet noticeable notes of spice, such as black pepper, coriander, lemon peel and saffron. Finally, the beer finishes with some nicely balanced, grassy, piney, hops. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Medium/medium-thin and extremely creamy and smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 4.6%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: What a terrific wheat beer! And I usually don’t like wheat beers, but this one is really terrific. I really love the strong flavors of toasted malt and wheat, balanced well with some subtle sweetness, spicing and hops. Highly recommended.
