Odd. All my reviews today seem to be rather contrarian. Well, so be it! I *like* this beer. It made me write down "yum" in my tasting notes, which is not something I often do.
It's not that great looking -- clear gold with a thin white top, and more of a hazy yellow when the yeast is added. The aroma is OK -- sharp and citric at the start, with some developing floral and spice notes.
But the flavor just struck me as really, really nice. Ample carbonation lends a nice zing to the first sip, along with something of a sharp, wheaty taste. Toward the middle, the flavor develops a bit more sweetly, and it moves to a very pleasant, long-lasting finish that is gently bitter and spiced. Medium-light bodied, though the addition of the yeast gives it a bit more substance (recommended).
This isn't an in-your-face beer. It's more of an Audrey Hepburn than a Marilyn Monroe. Delicate, graceful, and no worse off for it, IMHO. A lovely beer for a warm San Diego day.
