Cloudy, wheat straw coloured beer with a decent white head which disspated into nice lacings. The beer was poured as per bottle instructions, pouring half into the glass then swirling to mix in the yeast sediment.
Lemongrass accentuated with brett tanginess on top of wheaty bready aromas with just a hint of wheat nuttiness.
The bready and nutty wheat flavour came through and was overlayed with a hint of clove, citrus and brett tang.
Nice light tangy beer. Good balance between wheat flavours, citrus from the orange peal and coriander, and the hint of hops. The carbonation was a nice compliment to the mild zestiness of the beer.
This is a very drinkable and refreshing brew. Perfect for a hot summer's evening when wants to quench their thirst, cool down, and have an interesting brew. Ill drink it again sometime for sure.
