Appearance: Served up a hazed, dark gold body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Pils and wheat malts supported by piquant notes of lemon juice, lemon zest, flowers, bananas, and spice. Taste: Pleasant medley of pale, pilsner, and wheat malts with light tanginess from the wheat and an initial burst of sweetness. A strong streak of lemon rushes into the flavor, slightly obscuring the lesser, secondary tastes of banana and coriander. Floral, citrusy hop character with a mild bitterness. It’s like a lemon ice-wheat hybrid. Semi-dry, citrus-laden finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Fairly enjoyable. All of the lemony tastes within really gives this one an overall bright, refreshing quality to it.

On tap at Taco Mac on Peachtree Street. Thankfully wrote some notes down on a cocktail napkin. Anyways, this wheat ale is awesome. It looked like banana puree! Very nice haze bright yellow. Not really that much head, but just an awesome yellow color. Nice citrus/banana aroma. Not really much on the yeast, but the banana and citrus are just amazing to smell. Not an extremely pungent beer, but this is generally the case with wheat beers. Flavor is strong citrus/banana/lemon. A mix of nice fruit flavors just makes this beer amazing. The lemon adds a nice not in the background. I wasn’t expecting the subtle lemon flavor, but definitely noticeable. The lemon flavor adds that touch of ctirus while drinking it that balances out the banana/subtle yeast flavor. Overall, amazing wheat and one of it not my favorite wheat ale!
