This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to yellow color with a thick white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving barely any lacing. The smell started off with a sharp sweet to bitter citrus blending over a decent sweet wheat base. The taste was mainly sweet balancing a nice tart citrus and a sweet wheat base. There’s no aftertaste but it did have a quick sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed spot on for the style and allowing the wheat to be the body of the beer. Overall, this was a pretty good offering from Henniker. I’d probably have again.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a very thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, wheat, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a decent burst of hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of citrus, caramel and bananas. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a thin malt character creating a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time.
