Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Cloudy light yellow wheat colored body, holding a white foamy head that recedes to a white film. Light watery lacing remains.

Aroma: Faint yeast and wheat, soon laced with floral aromas and citrus peels. Hops come alive in the end with a slightly piny note.

Taste: Belgian at first, doughy yeast comes out alongside a bouquet of fruits and citrus. The finish tastes more American with piny and bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: Clean and flavorful, a good beer for any Spring day.

on tap at Punch Bowl Social, Portland

Haxy lemon with white film.
Wit nose heavy on the lemon.
Saltines, lemon curd, big yeasty bite, and lemon hops to end.
Wheaty finish and dry waxy linger.
Light, oily, round.

For all the talk of a new style, very wit-y. Cascade and Citra, but they are mostly missing, or let’s say I’ve had hoppier Belgians. Falls between two stools, badly.
