1.94 pint bottle. Cool label...and I LOVE the cork...i just love that whole cork thing, id dig it if every brew came with a cork to pop.
Apperance: Budweiser yellow, but not as clear. The color goes from orange to yellow when you go from natural to artificial light. The head on this brew is just perfect! I love the head here. Cotton white with bursting mountains of foam.
Nose: Orange is so nice from this brew. It isnt your orange peel chicken, this is orange blossom...the flower of the orange tree....yum! Next comes the herbs...I have no clue what kind, but it's herby...or herbacious, whatever.
Taste: My god, the head has lasted the whole time Ive been writting this and into the "taste" section. I could go watch TV and the head will wait for me. It's crisp to the mouth, I taste lemon, orange and then herb.
Notes: Love the cork, love the label, love the head!

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.
