First had on tap at 3 Floyds, then single bottle from Whole Foods in Chicago - snuck into my luggage back to Edmonton. Pours a bright slightly hazed golden straw colour with one finger uniform head and lively carbonation. Aroma is distinctly hoppy wheat malt, some citrus - orange and grapefruit - mild pine and hints of bubblegum.
Taste is a hoppy wheat with pine, citrus, bit of pineapple - pleasantly hoppy and bitter but somehow finishes really smooth with background sweetness. So well balanced with perfect carbonation. Outstanding!
