Appearance: Poured a hazy pale straw yellow. One finger white foamy head. Very little visible carbonation. Mild lacing.

Smell: Light and sweet wheat malts. Flavors of banana and bubblegum with very mild nutmeg spices. The yeast esters smooth everything out.

Taste: Tastes pretty much exactly like the nose, but with strong banana and bubblegum flavors. A nice light wheat body.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a little carbonation bite, but very smooth.

Drinkability: A very good witbier that is very similar to a hefeweizen. Wonderful in being very mild, but still having strong and pleasing flavors. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

Buy Again? Yes.

Out of a bottle into a wheat beer glass.

Looks very yellow, nowhere near as cloudy as normal wheat beer, but this is not filtered. A good golden color in the light.

Smells wheatier than most wheat beers, but not as strong of a smell.

Tastes much sweeter too. Less orange, more coriander and wheat malt. Easier to drink. Strong Banana overtones throughout, really wonderful.

Pretty good mouthfeel, perhaps a little too watery.

Very very drinkable, will buy again.

I wasn't expecting too much from this beer, picked a 22 ounce bottle up for $1, but after cracking the top off I was greeted with a wonderful scent of beer with a slight spice to it. I was grilling outdoors at the time so I didn't properly pour it into a glass, but it was still a wonderful beer. Crisp and clean. Sweet, with very little after taste. Can't wait to try it again, just wish I could find that price again somewhere.

I didn't know it was organic. Neat-o. Cloudy, pale yellow with a thin white head. No lace but persistent retention.

It's a spicy meatball! White pepper, lemon zest and farmy yeast character stand out. Buttered popcorn and bacon and eggs come to mind.

Taste is lemon, farmy dry hay yeast, and spicy coriander citrus.

It reminds me of Allagash white and that's always a good thing.
