I'll start by saying this isn't my favorite style but it came in a great 12 variety pack with prima, kolsch, and summer love. The nose is a combination of lemon and a sweet flower, maybe a gardenia off in the distance. The taste is light on the typical wheat taste but it's there and tasty. This seems to be a well-executed wit really well suited for sitting on a patio on a hot day.

6/29...pours hazy bright yellow with thick white foam. Soft citrus nose, wheat based aroma. Taste is clean, subtle orange lemon citrus. Some tart. Very mild bitter. Carbonated too.

Reminds me a lot of Allagash White, beacuse they both have the same sort of flavor profile. Lies on the spicier end of the style, but it's mild, it doesn't beat you over the head. Banana, clove, coriander, and a little orange/lemon peel as well. If you're a fan of yeasty beers, this packs a nice little punch there as well. Very tasty, very drinkable, soft feel. Well worth a try.
