Look- pours a golden color with a decent head. A sudsy, soapy looking lace covers 3/4 of the top and retains really well. In fact, the very last sip is just the lace.
Smell- some biscuit and cracker like aromas, fruity; pear, passion fruit and some tropical fruit. Also, there is an intermittent barnyard slightly funky aroma that comes through, which reminds me of a saison.
Taste- Fruity sweet balanced by peppery spicy. Bready malt. Light hops presence. Finish is not dry.
Feel- crispy and tight carbonation at first, then, it recedes significantly, bringing out the flavors. The body is light to medium.
I thought this was a solid, tasty and really drinkable brew.

Look is golden hay with a thin bubble head.

Aroma is lots of spice and flowery herbal yeast.

Taste is very clean with a nice peppery spice note.

Very excellent beer. Just an excellent beer to sip.

Pours to hazy yellow and permanent head and good lacing. Aroma is strong bubble gum and clove and bready yeast. Flavor is a mishmash of hefeweizen, witbier, and American pale ale. Mouthfeel is rough and astringent. Meh. Never again.

12 oz bottle purchased from City Swiggers and poured into a stemmed Spiegelau Pilsner glass. Pleasant, if a bit thinner and less flavorful than I expected. Would drink again.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: The body has a deep golden color with good clarity and some visible carbonation. It is topped off with a small just off white head. This head slowly settles to a thin wispy film covering.

Smell: In the nose I get some light maltiness with mild floral and citrus hop notes.

Taste / Palate: The flavor has a good malt base with a slight clover honey like sweetness. This is balanced with floral, citrus and grassy hop bitterness. The carbonation feels well balanced to body making it very drinkable.
