GLASS: Pilsener Glass
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
Pours a hazy, almost cloudy, yellow color with light hints of gold. Three-finger head of fluffy white foam. Retention is great. Lacing is minimal.
Pretty much the expected nose here. Nice hints of orange/lemon/citrus scents. Good presence of corriander with light clove notes. Good yeastiness. Light hints of bananas and bubblegum. Notes of fresh hay.
Smells sweet, light and spicey.
Mmm, that's a touch more lemon-y than anticipated. Nice, big wheatiness. Presence of corriander and cloves (spices) is very light. Mild sweetness. More yeasty hints of bananas and bubblegum. A nice tangy zing in the finish that makes me want more.
Good medium body. Smooth enough to enjoy, yet lacks any real creaminess. A light crispness is managed.
Easily drinkable, especially on a summer afternoon. A crisp, light, enjoyable session beer.

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!
