Commercial Description

Turbid (cloudy) spun-gold brew with excellent head retention. Dry and crisp with a honey-like aroma, fruity taste and clean aftertaste. A superb summer beer garnished with a slice of fruit, like an orange or peach.

    [Best served in a Weizen glass]

    The pour was a hazy brownish yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a small cap which produced some fair spotty lacing.

    The aroma was mild of a light grain malt and a sweaty Belgian yeast with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), pears, wheat and a bit of coriander.

    The taste was lightly sweet with a moderate dose of wheat and honey early on, progressing into a much yeastier flavor that had a strong citrus presence and a touch of spice at the end.
