A: Yellow but in a golden, misty, lemon colored version. Very soft, small, white bubbles which mostly dissipates quickly, except for a ring around my snifter.
S: Pleasant and distinct Belgian yeast spice notes, with an Italian lemony aroma. The straw notes from wheat is attractive.
T: First thoughts are how well crafted this beer is. Fresh flavors of lemons, off-set by wheat dryness, then a subtle spic. Almost zero bitterness. Medium high carbonation, but really compliments the beer. I tend not to like spice beers, it's apparent after drinking this brew, it's over spiced beers that I don't like. Here the spiciness (coriander and others?...argued on allspice) blends and enhances the experience.
O: Highly drinkable, very refreshing, super balanced, and great flavors. This brew shows up on many lists of best American Craft Summer brews. I totally agree. This is one of those great brewies that I take for granted because it's well represented at good craft beer shops. I won't keep making that mistake.
Pours a cloudy straw color with a nice one inch pure white head. Good retention spotty lacing.
Aroma is fantastic. Yeast, Wheat, and a spicy citrus.
Taste is excellent as well. A nice lemon and wheat flavor upfront with a mild sourness that works into a spicy clove and finishes with a sweetness on the palate. Finishes with a tart dryness on the palate. Very enjoyable and well balanced.
Light body with medium carbonation. Creamy and smooth in the mouth.
Everything about this beer is right on the money. Very enjoyable, refreshing and easy drinking. Nice level of complexity. Add it to my list of favorites!
