Pours a hazy deep golden with apricot hues and a foamy one inch white head that slowly dissipates, leaving spotty lacing.
Apricot, tangerine, coriander, and wheat form the initial aroma. There's a confectioners sugar sweetness that surfaces, along with light floral hop notes.
Flavor is wrought with tangerine, followed by confectioners sugar sweetness that hits mid palate and carries into lightly toasted, bready malt at the finish. Wheat character is notable, but not dominant, as is coriander and the grains of paradise. Floral character is also subtle, but present throughout.
Body is a touch light, with fairly high carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.
Very fruity initially, with well balanced sweetness and dryness. Slightly weak overall impression, but not a bad beer.
