330ml bottle, served in oversized tulip

A - semi-cloudy wheat colour, 1" head that dissipates

S - pale malts, a little funk, some gum-y hops

T - pale malts, a little wheat, sweet without being overly so, maybe a little grape?

M - a little denser than normal, but it really works. Medium-light on the carbonation.

O - very nice! I'd like to do a BPA A/Bing sometime.

This pours a clear golden color with billowy foam. There’s a vibrant aroma, estery & floral, with notes of coriander and lemongrass. Spot on, it smells great!

The flavor is crisp, bright, with a clear estery finish that showcases some noticeable straw notes. Sweetly dry, this was enjoyable.
