On tap at the Hay Merchant.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of lemon notes in it, as well as some wheat and yeast. The flavor is a little more complex. I get the same lemon from the aroma, but it is complimented by some strong basil and coriander notes. There is also a strong wheat backbone. Easy to drink. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Had it on tap at the flying saucer.

First off I love Buffalo Bayou and just about every thing they put out. Sadly this was not a winner. The first sip wasn't bad it was okay tasted almost as expected, like a wit, smelled a little bit flowery. The second sip I took it tasted like hot dog water and that got worse and worse as I tried to power through it. But this is the only beer I have ever sent back for something better in my life, it was disappointing because it had been talked up to be by someone at the brewery on their opening weekend, I was expecting something a lot better.
