Clean golden pour, low white head, leaving just a few spots and a very thin lace.
Nice fruity smell, with green/yellow grape, apple juice, very mild orange zest, gooseberries, faint apricot. Touch of wheat.
Fresh bread dough and crisp lemon zest in the initial sip, developing into a sweeter citrus characteristic and some light orchard fruit notes. Nice grainy malts with rich fluffy wheat. The hops are a bit off in the finish, bit spicy, yes, but with a dry leafy bitterness that lingers a bit too much in the finish and pushes away all the fruitiness.
Medium body, prickly fizz, a bit buttery, fitting an American-style wheat.
Starts very promising but loses its appeal rather fast, so just ok, i guess.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear, bright golden color. Smells of tropical and ripe, dark fruits. Not much else. Malty and fruity with a surprising hoppy finish. Crisp carbonation with a little tartness. Light to medium body. Nothing special, but an interesting beer. I’ve never had anything quite like it.
