Poured on tap a hazy, milky darkish yellow under a half-inch thick white head which leaves spotty lace. Aroma is yeast driven, citrusy, spices, grassy, herbal, estery with faint banana. Flavor follows the nose. Semi-medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes dry, fruity and yeasty. Good

Hazy straw with a big, long-lasting, frothy head that leaves thick patches of lace on the walls of a stein.

Peppery spice and citrus zest are nicely profiled against light sourness.

The flavor includes light orchard fruits punctuated by lemon with sourdough in the background. A long, subtle finish brings out light acidity.

Light to medium body with no discernible alcohol. Fine effervescent carbonation adds to the overall dryness of this beer.

Harbinger is refreshing and easily enjoyable with friends on a hot, humid summer day out on the deck until the sun sets.
