Pours a cloudy yellow with shades of gold. Forms a very nice head which very slowly dissipates leaving some very nice lacing.

Very nice mixture of wheat and citrus, lemon stands out.

Well balanced flavours of wheat and lemon. Incredibly easy drinking and flavourful.

Smooth bordering on creamy, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish.

Very nice for a lighter beer, complex while very enjoyable and refreshing.
