12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass.

A- a hazy goldenrod, sediment obvious in the brew. Bright white head, with a little lacing.

S- lots of citrus and belgian wheaty character.

T- A nice mix of the belgian wheat character, slightly spicy and clove forward, with a decidedly lemony hop profile and a crackery malt base. Some yeasty esters are on the finish.

M- lighter side of medium, active carbonation and very nicely dry on the finish.

O- a well executed brew. This thing screams summertime.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Hazy, very lemony, aroma, Belgian yeast, pear. Flavor is more wheat, with a cracker finish. Lots of lemon, pear, and grain, with floral highlights. Slightly spicy, clove, and a touch of proper. Citrus pith. Very clean yeast character. Notes of bubblegum esters surface late.

Serving type: on-tap
