Golden pour, lots of haze, looks similar to Allagash white. Massive soft, pillowy white head over an inch. Aroma hit with spice rack, pepper, coriander, citrus rind and flower shop.

Taste popped with all the spice rack stuff, plenty of wheat grist. Sometimes a less fresh (now that it is retired especially) bottle seems to be the better play for me because the spice rack isn't so prominent, allows the soft wheat to netflix and chill in my mouth. Plenty bready that way, like a wheat and rye blend of bread.

A well made beer, but I can see why they discontinued it, its just not a sexy seller in the land of sours and -bals.
