Pale hazy yellow with a 2 finger head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has citrus, coriander, wheat malt, and some banana.

This is an incredibly easy beer to drink. I can taste citrus, coriander, wheat malt and banana. Tastes just like it smells. Has a light sweet flavor, and there is just enough citrus zest to make this perfectly balanced for my tastes.

Light to medium bodied with above average carbonation. There is a light citrus aftertaste, and this beer is incredibly easy to drink. I would definitely like to try this again if I get the chance.

Poured nicely with a little head (less than one finger). The picture was taken about 1 minute after pouring. Appearance is cloudy, but pleasant yellow. It looks like what I’d expect from a wheat beer. I got a lot of lemon and coriander when I first smelled it. On first sip, you definitely get the coriander. It’s not overwhelming, but it’s not overly simple either. It’s a nicely balanced beer. I’m also getting a little bit of clove, and the more that I drink it and the citrus flavors definitely come out. It’s got a nice carbonation to it and I could see easily putting away a bunch of these while sitting on a patio on a summer night.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass

A- very cloudy, light yellow in color. Two finger width head with nice sticky lacing

S- not the best part of this beer, but good nonetheless. Yeasty

T- amazing. Cloves and spice with a nice malty background.

M- nice carbonation, perfectly balanced. Very drinkable

Overall, this is one of the best beers I've ever tasted. Made me want to run out to the liquor store and buy more.
