Pours light orange with a healthy amount of sediment. A finger of white head.

Nose is banana, lemon, and grass.

Taste opens hefe-like with banana and bread - peppery hops mid-palate. Light, easy finish with a touch of lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is creamy. Maybe the strongpoint of this beer.

Overall, interesting. Grassy, crisp, fruity, and smooth.
