Pours golden hazy with a very nice white foam head, excellent retention. Aroma is of wheat and yeast, lots of spices. No hops. Taste is very refreshing, bitter with wheat notes and hops, medium bitterness. Bold body with high carbonation. Very drinkable white IPA really liked it.

Comes on like a combination of a witbier, radler and IPA. Excellent and refreshing. Cloudy pale golden body with fluffy white head. Aroma and taste is lemon, piney hops and white bread. Perfect summer beverage.

Light coriander notes. Pleasing muted hop presence. Drying finish.
