3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a thick white head and no lacing. The aroma is lemons, green apples, hay, and a lot of yeasty funk. The flavor is fruity sweetness up front and through the middle, with a little bitterness and sourness in the finish. The palate is light, crisp, acidic, and clean through the finish. Overall, this is a wonderfully crafted and subtle beer. Very light and drinkable, yet complex.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a fair amount of banana esters and a distinct dustiness. Fairly fruity. Body is a moderately hazy golden color with a smallish, off-yellow head. Starts spicy, dry, and quite carbonated. Very bubbly--champagne-esque. Becomes fruity with mild yeast dusty esters. Strong carbonation throughout. Fairly drinkable, but it would be more drinkable if the carbonation was toned down. The carbonation hides the flavors and creates a bit of a one-dimensional beer.

On draft at Craft. Pale yellow looking with lively carbonation. Very refreshing taste with a wheat beer-esque finish. Smells quite herbal, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

Hazy golden with a large white head. Lightly spiced aroma, yeast, a bit of hops, and light fruits. Sweet fruits, light spices, a bit of wheat, a bit of citrus, and floral. Medium, carbonated body. Pretty fun brew but not an everyday drinker.
