Clear light golden yellow in color. Forms a modest white head. Decent retention and some light lacing. Aroma is bright and citrusy with notes of grapefruit and citrus pith along with a strong wheat character. Taste is somewhat odd. Very dry with lots of citrus, but absolutely no sweetness and no juiciness. Orange, grapefruit, and maybe some mango or tropical fruit, but again there is no sweet juiciness here. Pithy, toasty, or earthy? Not sure how to describe it. Dry, crisp, and astringently bitter.
