4.1/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow color with a 1 finger frothy white head which dissipates quickly. Nice lacing throughout.
Smell: Very nice mix of spices and wheat with a bit of lemon and orange peel.
Taste: Nice spicy flavor up front with strong citrus notes. Very similar to the smell, which is a good thing. Slight hoppy bitterness at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-to-Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Goes down very smooth.
Drinkability: High drinkability because it is so smooth. I could easily down several of these without any problem. Would be an ideal summer beer.
Overall: I would highly recommend this beer. Very good representation of the style.

4.11/5 rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Tasted On: 07-10-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Purchased: Received in a trade
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!
