Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of bready malt that turns tart and spicy with notes of lemon, pepper, and coriander. The tasting finishes with a squeeze of tangy orange that’s mellowed by a hint of honey. A creamy wheat base ties the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is soft with a smooth draw that becomes a bit grainy on the backend. It has a medium body and moderate carbonation. Its finish is slightly acidic and somewhat dry.
