Brutally cold in MN - figured it would be a good time to bust this out. Clear light yellowish amber pour with a nice white head. Bright wheat nose, slightly floral notes, slight citrus and tropical fruit. Really nice taste, slight citrus, some funk. Slightly tart and slightly bitter in the finish. Yummy.
