On tap at the brewpub. Unfiltered look and lacey. Carbonation is right there, but also a little watery and a little sour. Drinkable, some hops and some orange flavour, and yeasty, was better as it warmed. Funky aroma.

Draught, at the brewpub
Densely-sedimented almost to the point of grayness. Nice aroma - assertive with lots of marshmallowy malts, lime juice and coriander. Full body. Nice quenching wheat. Balanced coriander and restrained orange. Herbal hop provides counterpart to the big marshmallow malts. Nice...and that’s despite the brewer’s claim it is starting to get a little long in the tooth.
