12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 3/27/2013. Pours hazy and cloudy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of orange, pear, lemon zest, wheat, biscuit, clove, pepper, light banana, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange, pear, lemon zest, biscuit, wheat, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light banana, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, biscuit, wheat, pepper, clove, light banana, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of malt, yeast, and hop flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice wheat ale. All around good balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
