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.

A- Light cloudy straw yellow body with a small white head. Lots of carbonation.

A- Light sweet aroma with lemon. There is a definite sour tartness.

T- Light sweet tart flavor. Light lemon and no noticeable corriander flavor. A bit light on flavor.

M- Light body and high carbonation. Very smooth drinking.

D- Pleasant beer, but a bit light on flavor. I am more partial to a heavy coriander flavor.

Poured into a weizen glass. Pours a very pale straw, hazy, effervescent very light. The one inch white head collapses to a thin foam quickly, leaving moderate lacing. Coriander and lemon on the nose. Coriander dominates the flavor, with lemon zest and a bit of wheat toward the middle; the finish is lemon rind. A bit sweet. Very quaffable; light bodied. Seems a tad heavy on the spices to me.

Consumed at Steingarten, Los Angeles, CA on February 25th, 2012.

Beer is a clear, lemony yellow with a fine, one finger white head. Moderate sheeting.

Aromas of banana, lemon, coriander.

Palate follows nose with addition of some grassiness. No bitterness.

Well carbonated, some prickle on tongue.

Goes down smooth and easy; a great hot weather beer.
