Quite clear for the style. Deep gold color. Small head that settles to the rim. No lace.

Mildly sweet with some soft wheat aromas.

Good wheat presence with the essence of banana, all spice and coriander. Smooth swallow with a short-lived aftertaste. Rich body for the style but it still has an elevated carbonation.

Stylistically i just took a stab in the dark at the style, its a light golden ale and tastes like theres a bit of wheat in it. crystal clear dull golden hue with absolutely no head. Light super effervescent body, almost a cider like in carbonation. Sweet graininess, yuzu juice lends a little bit of citrus character, some tartness, and some pear undertones. A little bit of husky grain edge on the back end which balances the beer a bit. The grainy malt bill combined with the fruitiness is kind of the nice, the finish is a little harsh on the back end with some spice and a touch of alcohol heat which is strange for such a low abv beer. Could use more hop but it's refreshing.
