This is a beer I have been wanting to try for a long time, luckily I finally got the chance to try this multiple times at GABF 2008. The beer is a very pale, gold color and it is topped by a fizzy, fairly quickly disappearing, pale-white colored head. The aroma is noticeably tart with a light funkiness to it that lurks just beneath. This has lots of wheat character that reminds me of freshly crushed wheat berries; it really does have a hearty, whole grain character to it that is a mix of freshly threshed grain and expressive wheat aromatics.

The taste is exquisitely refreshing and this is so light on the Palate. It has a light, not aggressive, but noticeable / dominant tartness to it that cuts through most of the other flavor components. This is perhaps not nearly as funky as I might prefer, that the tartness makes this fantastically drinkable. After my palate adjusts to the tartness I start to pick up a solid wheat note in the flavor that adds a nice, expressive, grassy-grain and cracker-like notes to the finish.

This is one of those beers I just kept coming back to, a great example of the style and its light, refreshing qualities (yet with lots of flavor) kept me coming back for a Palate refresher.
