12 oz bottle has a freshness code of 9138. Pours a very hazy golden color with a large sized cap of fluffy white foam. Retention is good and leaves tons of lacing on the glass. The only eyesore with this beer is the fairly large chunks of yeasty brown sediment that settle near the bottom of the glass.
Smell mainly consists of ripened orange flesh and crisp, tangy wheat. There is some underlying bready yeast aroma and maybe even a touch of kaffir lime leaves and grassy hops.
Taste has some characteristics of a typical American wheat ale, but has a creamy, yeasty flavor that reminds me of a German hefe without the banana and cloves. There is a definite, but soft hop flavor and just enough bitterness to finish clean and easy. Leaves nary a hint of aftertaste. This is one amazing summer beer and one I would buy by the case if it were to be available in Texas. Deee-licious!
