Poured it too rapidly. I'm looking at a third of the glass of foam. Waiting for the fluffy white head to settle before draining the can. A soft hazy yellow color advertises the beer.
Snappy coriander and ripe orange peel/flesh. Brittle wheat malts are aromatic, but give the esters and spices avenues to express themselves. Light lemon, wheatgrass, and egginess. Nice whiffs.
A little grainier and brined, but still coming off of that good nose. More coriander and clove and hints of star anise, than orange peel and wheat that survives. Hints of lemon-lime soda. Strangely, it has that anise bump to it that makes for another imperfection, but undoubtedly unique. Citrusy hop with some flowery bitterness. Good stuff.
Drinks like Easy Street. Slight alcohol accent that caroms off of textural carbonation to diminish the body.
Good. Ranges from okay to excellent, depending on format (had a great version, in bottle, earlier this year). Too much inconsistency.

A - poured a pale straw with light orange highlights and a one finger white head that dissipated quickly much like a sprite or other similar soda would. No lacing or residual head leaving it flat looking shortly after the pour.
S - nose is a subdued fruityness, candied banana notes followed by tons of orange dominant citrus aroma that also is a little lemony. A mellow malt wafting through after that with some slight pepper and herbs.
T - very mellow flavor profile, starts with a slight fruity yeast taste thats a little herbal with orange and banana, ends with a mellow malt flavor, slight bitterness but not substantial, and almost a lacking wateriness at the end.
M - carbonation is medium to low for the style, or at least less then what I'd prefer. This left it less crisp and a little chewy for the style.
O - this is a good solid beer, but has some areas leaving me less then impressed. After the pour the beer was very flat in appearance. Taste was great but wish it was kicked up a notch, it seems a little mellow and subdued.
