4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle as a gift brought home from Virginia:
Hazy, light, golden colour with a thin, white head that consists of tonnes of tiny bubbles and stays well for a minute or so.
Spicy notes initially with some yeast and lemon coming through along with it. There is a strong smell of coriander that follows this and some bananas and orange peel.
Strong wheat and yeast flavours with some banana and clove to kick things off with. There is hints of coriander in the taste too along with a bit of citrus lemon and some orange zest.
Light medium with some spice and a citrus tang along with a relatively creamy and smooth taste, coupled with strong carbonation.
Miles better than I was expecting and I knew it was going to be a nice beer before I tried it. All the usual suspects are there for the style but they come together great and the beer is a cracker.

On draught at McClellan- Washington. Pours a very dense pale straw color with a yellowish hue. Fine bubble white head and lace. Mild corriander aroma. Medium body with moderately effervescent mouthfeel. Not over carbonated. Impressive blend of light spices complement the mellow wheat flavor. Refreshing and not filling.
