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.
Serving type: on-tap

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.
S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.
T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.
M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.
O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
