L - Poured into a Weizen glass. Turbid straw color, minimal foam and spotty lacing
S - Fresh straw, some spices. Smells like Belgium.
T - Whoa. Hard to put into words. Complex and somehow it all comes together. Orange zest, spice. Kinda like Allagash House (another great beer) but more sophisticated.
F - Great feel and finish. Perfect carbonation.
O - Visited the brewery for the first time and while I picked up several other beers, somehow forgot to grab this. Found it at my local beer guy's store. Outstanding. One of the only US breweries that can manage to pull off a Belgian wheat.

Poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Bottled on September 26th 2016.

L: Pale hazy yellow. Finger width white head, super fluffy, excellent retention. Insanely sticky lacing.

S: Sharp on the nose, clove, coriander, wheat, yeast, banana, lemon, orange peel.

T: Yeasty and grainy, very loud flavor of coriander and wheat. Orange peel, lemon and a hint of banana. Grass, white pepper.

F: Seltzer-ish amount of carbonation and light body make this an easy drinker and refreshing.

O: I have heard how good this beer is and it more than lives up to its reputation. How delicious.

I cracked this open and I smelt tones of cloves, lemon and orange with a bit of a burnt grain smell. The look was a cloudy yellowish orange with a thick head. It tastes a bit tart at first, but then the citrus flavor kicks in as well as a taste of banana bread. It isn't very carbonated however, and there is a strong aftertaste of said banana bread.
