From 32oz growler purchased 2 days ago

Pours a straw color with plenty of haze, can't see through the pour, not much of a head and no lacing though.

Smell is mostly light sweet malt, bit of banana and clove aromas, pretty soft when it comes to the nose as nothing is overly fragrant.

Taste is light and crisp, carbonation seems a bit weird and reminds me more of seltzer water, sweet malt up front with a decent wheat-y aftertaste, light bitterness keeps things balanced.

On tap at Front Street Pub.
Gold color, small white head.
Faint aroma of banana and grass.
Ditto for the taste. Not very flavorful.
Average beer at best.

Pint on tap at Miguel's in Bangor. Watching the Celtics season end.

Appearance: Hazy straw/yellow. Nice ringed lacing. Finger-width head.

Aroma: Big lemon punch. Also wheat, honey, citrus, grapefruit.

Taste: Follows nose. Somewhat bitter for an APWA. Very lemony. Reasonably appealing.

Mouthfeel: Fairly easy and summery. Maybe a touch more abrasive than most APWAs because of the lemoniness.

Overall: Nice wheat ale. Like most stuff I've had from this brewery, it's solid if not mind blowing.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a hazy orange-gold color with a filmy, thin, white head. Nose of banana bread and orange peel. Thin, crisp body with clove and citrus flavors. Light, and very balanced. Roasty, banana bread aftertaste with a slick, slightly spiced finish. Not bad, but not a lot of wow in there, either.
