I can't believe I haven't reviewed this beer. With the recent closing of MBC's main facility, I'm glad I was able to pick up a bottle. Who knows what will happen to this fine brew?

Bottle etched (07/28/12)poured into a Hoegaarden hex glass.

A- Beautiful for the style. 1-finger white head sustains at a thin film throughout. The body was a hazy pale/straw color with moderate carbonation. A later yeast swirl adds to the haze/cloudy body. Really good stick left on the glass.

S- Nice and sweet. At first I imagine lifting the lid from the mash to inhale the wheaty goodness. Citrus, hints of peppery spice. Lemon becomes more prominent later.

T- Lovely and delicate. A solid dose of citrus (lemon/orange zest) and spice (grains of paradise, black pepper, corriander?). Black peppery without the bite. Malts are cracker-like. Clean finish.

M- Fairly light bodied. Lemony flavor helps to dry the finish.

O- Crisp and refreshing. Great summer beer. I can drink more than a couple in a sitting. The bonus is that I can share it with my wife.

I really hope somebody can continue with the recipe and name (especially locally). It's too good a back story to end with the closing of MBC's main brewery.
