4.4/5 rDev +6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Murky dark yellow color. One finger of thick, creamy head with average retention and moderate lacing.
4.5 S: Lemony citrus and corriander top of the list of aromas. Earthy yeastiness and hay-like wheat. Fresh and clean, very nice.
4.5 T: This is really good. Perfect grassy/hay wheat backbone with lemon zest, corriander, a bit of clove, and residual yeastiness. Not any amazing flavors, but really elegant brew.
4.0 M: Medium body. A bit undercarbonated for the style. A little bit more and this would be perfect.
4.5 D: Very good, one of the best wits out there.
When I had this on-tap it was nowhere near as good.

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
