Had on tap at New World Tavern Plymouth

Appearance: moderate carbonation, bright yellow-gold in color, minimal head, hazy

Smell: wheat and light citrus hops

Taste: wheat and a lot of citrus--orange and lemon in particular

Mouthfeel: light bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter with a touch of sweetness

Overall: A nice sipper..Hoppy enough to give it a kick, but the wheat also shines through. I would probably do a couple due to the dryness, but a really good effort.

On-tap 9/2/2012 at Pour Farm Tavern in New Bedford, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is light yellow color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, floral hops, wheat and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out very bready with a strong wheat flavor. Then some mild citrus sweetness comes in. There’s a good hops presence for the style and a thin malt character that provides a good balance. There’s also a background spice flavor. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a nice lighter beer to pound down for a long time.

Unusual greenish yellow color. Appropriately cloudy. Lots of blanket lace. Modest head that settles to a single layer.

Hop pellet aroma. Very surprising. There's only a touch of wheat in the background.

Astringent in a lip smacking way. Lots of bitterness. Not much direct wheat flavor. I suspect I'd find there would be no aftertaste if not for the bittering hop. The body is creamy with a good dose carbonation.
