Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger off-white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Sweet, slightly spicy aroma with a balance of zesty, peppery coriander, citrus fruit, banana and bready yeast. The yeast and banana notes stand out but are complimented by the grains and citrus. After it warms, hints of clementine, tangerine and grapefruit come to the forefront.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a prominent wheat/bready yeast flavor that overpowers the peppery spice and citrus sweetness. Slightly zesty with coriander, ginger and white pepper notes followed by hints of blood orange, tangerine and grapefruit but the bread and banana flavors are too strong for my liking, making it a bit one dimensional. Very easy to drink but could use more spice and citrus flavor.
