11.2oz bottle into tulip @38F

A: pours straw with a thin, brief white head

S: green grass, citrus, floral notes, apricot, pear, apple

T: same as smell, with a delicate hoppy-fruity finish

M: light-bodied with medium carb, little malt and a great dry/lightly bitter finish

O: Complex, well balanced and delicious! It’s like wine in beer’s clothing. It’s like drinking in the most refined aspects of a garden, orchard and wheat field all togther. I love it, and it’s a definite do-over. Wow.

Enjoyed 12oz bottle out of a porter glass.

A: Pours a cloudy orange with a slight white head that disappears quickly into no lace or trail.

S: Not a huge nose here – slightly citrus and hoppy.

T: Crisp and tart wheat flavor with a middle citrus hop middle and finishes on the dry side of tangy.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Interesting brew – worthy of a try.

Poured from bottle into tulip for hitachino bottle tasting fest 2013. Not much head golden haze color. Spicy yeast with a lager like aroma... Easy wheaty malts and spicey peppery notes. Clean and crispand sligtly citrus. Nice brew and easy to drink...
