3.84/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
a: This was a murky, muddy wheat color. It poured with a thick, medium sized white head.
s: Grassy, lemony hops; earthy wheat; and some estery, floral bananas.
t: Some sweet but subdued tropical fruit held in check by grassy lemon rind and earthy wheat. As it warms the wit yeast esters come into play.
m: Medium body with light carbonation.
o: I wish I would have had more than one small glass. Interesting for sure, a lot of diffetent flavors coming together pretty well.
Serving type: growler

16oz served in a pint glass
On tap at Wilmington Iron Hill 8/24/12
A: Pours a golden yellow color. Only a faint line of bright white. Leaves some lacing sheets.
S: Smells of lemongrass and wheat. And some yeast strains.
T: I get a lot Belgian yeast character. Spice: coriander, clove, etc. it's strange though. Don't know if it's the Grains of Paradise but it's a slightly off flavor.
M: Light to medium.

I had this on tap at Lancaster during Hop Attack -the release of Kryptonite '12. Served in a goblet chilled.
The color is deeply hazed golden with a thin cap of ivory. The bead is tiny and lace sticks well with carbonation visible. The smell is very fruity, lemony and zesty with some of the esters of the yeast present which gives a nice ripe banana accent. The smell is more floral than fruity as it warms. Mouthfeel is light with some body from the wheat and yeast with moderately high carbonation and mild bitterness with tangy zest of hops adding a nice amount of acidity and spice.
The taste is fresh and citrus tinge with lemony hop flavor combined with the slight tropical notes of yeast which has a banana element with mild toasted tinge from the wheat and malt. I like the way the Sorachi ace works with the yeast flavor which is a little spicy but more zesty with each sip. Overall this is a very quaffable beer for the strength, I would have guessed 5 or 5.5%, this is a highly drinkable stronger than average wheat with pretty substantial hop flavor - a nice juxtoposition between wheat and hops.
