This style is typically packaged with yeast in the bottle and pours cloudy. Light amber in color with mild hop bitterness and moderate alcohol levels, it offers flavors and aromas of citrus fruit (not banana or clove). Pair with salads, seafood, chevre (goat cheese), and fruit-based desserts. Best served at 40-45 degrees in a flute.
