Massive two finger head with tons of carbination streaming from base of the glass. Pale yellow apperance with a good touch of haze.
Strong pale grain aromas, pungent clove, and bittering hop notes. A good dose of lemon zest too.
Very tart and tangy lemon and ginger combo. Some bitter hop profile too. Sour wild yeast flavors come to mind. Pale grain, wheat, clove, and corriander. Complex offering once one gets through the initial sourness.
Mouthwater quenching light mouthfeel. Drink does however leave acidic taste in mouth like a sour.
Offering does have some very admirable charecteristics. Enjoyed more as the drink progressed, however not a desirable offering to have agian.

a pretty famous beer here, it has eluded me somehow until now. picked this up under 6 bucks over at colorado liquor mart, who is still chugging along with some hidden gems in the back there. a nice take on a wit, different than almost all of them because of (what i perceive anyway) this fresh ginger in here. a blonde beer with a golden flare, clear for the style, and while there are a ton of bubbles in it, no head really ever builds up. the nose is almost like ginger ale, its so potent to me, i have to believe there is real ginger in it. belgian type yeast is also fruity, while some malt other than wheat i think makes an appearance, giving some light caramel flavors as a base. ginger and cracked pepper in the finish, this could pass as a saison on the yeast character alone, less belgian than saison in that regard. super refreshing, and even though it looks flat, there are a lot of bubbles here in solution. my first beer from this operation is a winner, i like this a lot, different from the masses but still comfortably within what the style asks for. perfect hot weather refresher. super dig it.
