25.4 ounce bomber, corked and caged, poured into my new Ommegang Tulip.
A: Huge bone-white head, well over 2 fingers worth. Perhaps the most visible carbonation I've ever seen. Hazy golden straw color. Reminds me of "beer champagne" in the glass.
S: Yeast, clove, and banana all come through in the nose.
T: Light bready notes with a sour lemon zest on the back end. Perhaps a hint of clove and garlic. A touch of pine bitterness on the back end to help balance things out.
M: Light and lively doesn't do this justice. A yeasty wheat beer that is still light and refreshing enough to truly be enjoyable even on the hottest of summer days.
D/O: Enjoyable from start to finish, and I get why so many suggest that this is a great summer beer. Sometime soon I hope to give it a go on a hot summer day. Until then, this was enjoyable, but it's still not something that I *crave* when the weather isn't hot.
Serving type: on-tap
