Pours slightly hazy, light yellow color, Whitehead that leaves lots of lacing. Smell is clove slightly fruity and malty and taste follows, starts slightly sweet but ends more balanced. Mouth feel is light refreshing but not thin. Overall beer that is hard to find any flaws with.

A - hazy straw and saffron

S - Fresh wheat; subtle coriander overtones

T - very refreshing with nice citrus kick; this would go down oh too easy on a hot afternoon at the beach or pool

M - smooth and crisp; real nice texture with just the right amount of carbonation

Much better on tap than my recollection of a previous bottle.
An excellent example of this style and a nice change of pace from my recent selections of more hopped, stronger brews. Great summer sipper with my lobster roll.
