This is a damn fine beer. Knocked back two pints over lunch at 121 Restaurant in North Salem NY. Sat outside on a sunny day, and was able to hold the glass up to some gorgeous sunlight. Beautiful straw coloration with one of the whitest and fluffiest heads I've ever seen. Citrus and wheat on the nose made me begin salivating. Taste was smooth and clean with that breadiness of a good wheat beer coming through in a big way. I could have sat on that porch all day drinking this beer. While they have a nice little selection of crafts at 121, I think I'll be ordering this one up again when I return.

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!
