A: pours a creamy, thick, pure white head that causes me to salivate upon the mere sight. The liquid itself is pale straw, hazy, unassuming. Its hiding many secrets. Head retention is ok, with soapy foam residue around the rom of my pub glass.

S: oh, man! Now that's a wit! I smell the spices. Floral, slightly peppery grains of paradise, tons of wheats goodness. Lemony citrus, and i definitely get notes of coriander. Almost a subtle, hidden funk. The yeast comes through.

T: wow, it's almost briny. I get salty sensations. A mildly sweet, not quite tart (but perky) backdrop, with bready grains and spices in the foreground. Almost mildly soapy...but in a good way! The GOP come through and add depth, complexity, and nuance to the typical coriander. Not getting any of the star anise. But, as it warms, the spices blossom and play well with the grains.

M: velvety, full bodied, with a creamy, slightly effervescent head. Bubbles are so sift and delicate, yet the core has a bready structure.

As a lover of white ales and wheat beers, i'm really enjoying this! Hot summer day and this hit the spot!

This brew pours an opaque, hazy straw color with a small white head which dissipates after a few minuets then collects around the edge of the glass. Light lacing. Good carbonation

The smell is bubble gum, musty hay, coriander and some banana; maybe some Grains Of Paradise as well.

The taste follows the nose with sweet malts, then spices then banana hitting in sequence with light peppery hops on the back-end. The taste seems to improve as the beer warms up.

The mouthfeel is tangy, possibly due to the high carbonation, and smooth. Kinda feels like a "hard lemonade" if you let it sit for a few seconds; goes down smoothly.

Overall this brew took some getting used to; I did not like it the first time I had it but the second time is a charm, it has grown on me. There are other wheat beers out there that are better but this one is worth a try.
