Pours with a very inviting cloudy yellowish color and a large white poofy head. The aroma is of bready wheat with a touch of bread crust and a pleasant grainy character.  Some background notes of river rock minerality, fresh hay, and a bit of fresh ground black pepper.

The flavor echoes what the aroma presented with prominent grainy bread crusts, moderate spicy white pepper notes, and a light herbal presence. The flavor also adds some lemon and floral hop character with slight hints of fresh mowed grass.

The beer is clean with just enough hop bittering to offset the slight malty sweetness. The high carbonation and medium body are very refreshing. Pair this beer with Chicken A La King to contrast the sweetness and fullness of the sauce with the spritzy lemon of the beer, which will cleanse your palate between bites.
