Perfect cloudy straw color with a white head that is considerably thicker than most I've encountered in this style. Lacing is quite good as well and there is a considerable amount of carbonation visible in the glass. Smell is lemony with a good wheat twang. Spices are well represented with a nice dollop of coriander, a hint of banana in the back. Taste follows the nose with a great wheat malt core and good spice component. Lemony bright with a slightly tart dryness. A bit of light crackery malt and faint banana/clove with a dash of black pepper. Feel is light with a smooth crisp carbonation. Superbly drinkable and a great version of the style. one of the best I've had. Well done Avery!

Bought a single as part of a mix six at World Market in Round Rock. A substantial head upon initial pour, faded pretty quickly though. Left lots of sprider web lace though.Beer itself is a bit cloudy in appearance with a light straw color. Not a bad looker.

Very fruity and floral. Getting the coriander and orange right off the bat. A little lemon, banana, and wheat as well. I like.

Taste follows, but falls a bit flat. None of the scents really take over the taste, and the beer seems a bit muddled. Feels super carbonated as well and finishes quite dry. This would be a good hot weather beer for sure as it's quite easy to drink and not boozy at all. Finish is a little on the dry side.

All and all, a decent beer, but I'm not sure that this style is for me.
