A - super cloudy, pale straw color. Solid head retention and lacing.

S - citrus, pepper, and yeast.

T - similar to the smell. The peppery aftertaste really shines through.

M - just the right amount of carbonation. A little on the light/watery side though.

O - very drinkable, solid wit. One of my go-to beers.

Golden straw color with nice white head in Hoegaarden glass at Jackson, MS airport bar.

Smell is light fruit with a hint of spice.

Taste is sweet malts, light ripe fruit and spice. Hints of clove.

Mouthfeel is light and prickly.

Overall this was good.
