Wow! Easy-drinkin'...

Very sessionable crisp clean and smooth on the tongue.
Perhaps my next go-to hefe for the Summer.

A - Golden, hazy straw. 1/2 glass full of tiny white bubbles. Lots of fine lacing.

S - Banana bubblegum wheat...

T - Reminds me of Allagash Whte without the sour bite at the end... Absolutely delicious for someone looking for a lighter feel and taste. The banana is sweet and savory! Will DEFINITELY buy again...

M - Crisp and sweet... Light and refreshing

O - Almost in my top 10... I think it easily is a 4.5 beer.
