Like a slimmed-down Hefeweizen with a touch of spice. Smooth and fragrant. Surprisingly rich, malty flavor with a light, refreshing body. Nose of malt with a touch of banana and pears. A faint hoppy touch, but the stuff seems so well balanced. This just seems like the ideal pale, light beer. There seems to be just enough yeasty flavors to give it so much interest and complexity. Yet it's as clean and perfectly drinkable as any Pilsener.

On tap at Bergie's in Old Town, San Diego. Pale golden in the pint glass.

From a can (I know, heresy) obtained from a 6 pack at QFC in University Village near UW campus. Aroma is very sweet. Banana, citrus, gum, and very delicate. Very inviting a pleasant. Appears bright, but translucent. If you mixed orange juice with pineapple juice, I feel like that’s what this looks like. One to two fingers of white head. Tastes like sweet, fruity citrus. Pineapple, banana, coconut, plenty of other tropical fruits. It’s not overly citrusy or carbonated, it really has an incredible balance. It might be too sweet for the average beer drinker, but it’s just right for me. Palate has a perfect balance as well. Good carbonation, no bad residual flavors, goes down smooth. I can’t think of anything else I would ask for. Overall, this is one of the few beers that I feel comfortable buying a sixer of. It seems like no matter what mood I am in, I could be in the mood for this. This beer is what turned me on to Avery, and now I know I won’t go wrong with picking up any of their high brow stuff.
