Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of lemons and wheat, with a good dose of coriander thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of tropical and citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges, as well as some orange and wheat notes. There is also a low amount of bitterness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very refreshing, easy to drink wheat ale.

Poured a hazy orange yellow color, with aromas of wheat, banana, and citrus, not much tropical aromas coming through. Flavor is a light combo of the aromas, very sessionable beer in my book, mostly a lighter wheat beer, that would be good to grill out with in the heat. Good Summer beer.

Bottle shared by Jimmie. Poured a pale stray yellow that was slightly hazy with an average sized pillowy bright white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, light wheat, some grassy notes and a slight touch of white pepper. Flavor is very similar to the aroma with a touch of some tropical fruit and citrus rind. Very nice
