Pours cloudy with a couple of inches of thick, white foam to cap. Retention is average with a bit of meringue forming on top. No lacing to speak of.
Aroma is straight forward: yeast, fruity (orange), and maybe a touch pear, green apple, and/or green grape.
Taste is a bit thin. Same comes through from the nose. Additions of light banana and coriander (some type of very slight spice (clove)).
Very light in the mouth with a zesty carbonation that sticks to both the front and back of the tongue.
Very drinkable as it is easy on the palate and nose. This is a very light beer but still seems to pack some flavor and aroma, just don't expect something over the top. Delicate with subtle complexities. Enjoy!
