3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The third of the three 22oz bottles from this new brewery.
Pours a very hazy, bright yellow with a moderate fluffy white head that recedes fairly quikcly to a thin collar with little lacing.
Aroma is sweet with lots of bananas and bubble gum sweetness. There is also a healthy lemon zest presence, but this one almost smells like a hefe.
Taste is a bit more hoppy up front with lots of lemongrass and oranges but gives way quickly to the sweet wheat characteristics - fruity. Finish is a combination of the fruits, very slightly tart but also sweet.
The mouthfeel is effervescent and well carbonated with a medium body.
Iím impressed by this one and I think I may like this better than the other two, certainly more than the IPA. Well crafted wheat beer.
