Cloudy pale blond color; medium sized head. The aroma is spicy, dry; some plastic. The mouthfeel is lean, very dry, with an evident lemony and spicy character, although the spice profile is different than the usual Wit or Weisse; correct bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL thanks to cavemanlawyer. Pours glowing, full haze bright straw with massive white foam. Good retention and spotty lacing. Nose is slightly phenolic, fresh flowers and pollen, laundry dryer sheets. Taste is very light, super aerated with hints of crackery rustic grain. Finishes with sourdough biscuit and mild cream. Very refreshing. Just enough density to not come off as "thin."
