12oz bottle poured into a Coca Cola style pint glass (dishwasher day, ugh).
A: Poured with standard aggression which yields a fluffy white two fingers worth of head that slowly deflates, leaving some decent lacing. Cloudy orange-gold color, a nice looking beer.
S: Yeasty and spicy, with a wheat forward tone and a deliciously juicy citrus note from the Tettnang hops.
T: Starts smooth and sweet, which quickly turns into a pronounced wheat flavor and less of the juicy orange note than I would have liked, and a very, very gentle hop bitterness at the very end which mingles nicely with the spicy yeast character.
M: Surprisingly lush for a macro brew, pretty creamy but with a refreshing, slightly zippy carbonation which stops it from laying too heavy on the tongue. Quite nice, actually.
O: A very solid beer, easy to drink and very refreshing, a great beer for that midpoint between Winter and Spring.
