Pour has a significant fluffy head. Very white head provides decent lace.

Nose of coriander and yeast, slight malt, smell of cream or half and half.

Light flavor profile. Slight malts, coriander, hint of cinammon. Snappy finish wraps it up nicely. A refreshing wit, but on the understated side.

Bottle poured into a chalice at the Front Door, Boise ID.

A: Very light yellow/straw with apparent haze, decent carbonation and a soapy white head.

T: Banana, fresh banana nut bread, walnuts, black pepper, lemon peel, malty sweetness, wheat, clove, coriander.

MF: Light to medium body, smooth and clean, soft with the bottle conditioning.

O: Refreshing and enjoyable, I could see drinking this beer once a day during the summer months. Recommended.
