A: into a weizen glass, hazy gold beer with a head as-big-as-ya-want-it of white bubbly mousse foam
S: wheat, lemon, banana; subtle suggestions of herbal flowers and fresh air over grainy meadows
T: tart, fresh, refreshing; lots of wheat and lemon, supported by yeastiness and hops that bring to mind flowery meadows and fields of grain
M: light, crisp, and tingly - mouth puckering for but an instant, then a comforting wash of clean finish
O: what a great beer - well-executed pale wheat ale, like a crisp hefeweizen with a kick.

This beer pours perfectly. Straw color, lemon yellow, sun kissed gold with a white head of foam that fell fast to a thick cap. Great lace. It had a bouquet that filled the nose. Traditional Belgian nose. Yeasty, barnyard, horse blanket, musty, pepper, and ripe fruit. Apples and white grapes with a touch of lemon, & caramel malt. What was missing, if you want to think that it was missing, was bubblegum and banana. No alcohol on the palate either. This drank well. it was dry, crisp and the ripe fruit washed over the palate juicy and a little tart. It drank like dry white wine. Earthy and bright. The malt stood up in the glass and was not weak. The beer had a fine balance. Prickly carbonation so it wasn’t soft but the mouthfeel was pretty good. It’s traditional Belgian. Refreshing and lively.
