Nitro at Whole Foods Wauwatosa, 9/22/16. Clear golden with the densest, creamiest head I have ever seen. Off-white, good retention. WOW! Aroma of toasted, doughy malt, snappy hernal and noble hops. The taste is floral, herbal hops, citrus, pale malt. Medium bodied, crisp, delicate, drinkable. God damn this is good!

On tap a surly, pours a clear pale light copper with a medium white head. Fruity candied aroma, banana runts candy, and clove. Taste similar to aroma, like a watered down slightly bitter hefe-weizen. Meh.

Enjoyed on tap at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, MN while having a nice meal after seeing the Mark Mothersbaugh exhibit. I can’t say I’m a fan of this one, definitely not a fan of the style, lots of wheat. Just meh.
