Draft at Paradiso Dupont, courtesy of RJ, thank you sir! Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of citrus > pineapple > flowers. Taste is slightly funky farmhouse lemon. Nice.

LL edition. This one varied quite a bit from the one last year especially since its more of a pale/wheat offering. The color is pretty light, not quite adjunct lager light, but looks refreshing. A heavier citrus/grapfruit on the nose than I was expecting. Palate followed through with big citrus and acidity mid palate, but the finish was super long with bright flavors. I’m fairly confused if this is really a good beer for the warm summer months, looks refreshing but ends up being a bit heavier. Decent offering.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is a barely hazy golden with a medium, off-white head. Decent white lace. Nose at first is lemon cough drops and lemon candy. Taste is buttery biscuit, full malty, thick-bodied with grassy bitterness. Not really citrusy like I was expecting. Grassy bitterness adds balance to what was presented on tap as being a Wheat IPA, but clearly is just a simple, well-made wheat ale. Spending more time with it, the taste gains gritty, cornbread rustic fullness and buttery body without any diacetyl slickness. Sorachi Ace hops add a meaty melon note like jackfruit in the back end. Very enjoyable.
