Aroma (3.5): Good enough aroma. Is what a wheat smells like, nothing special
Appearance (4): Good color. Cloudy, hazy, all that jazz
Taste (3.5): I like the taste of this more than most. It tastes like a good, unassuming wheat beer.
Palate (4): About what you'd expect.

Bought a 6-pack of bottles.

Pours a hazy copper color with little to no head. Smells of citrus upon opeing the bottle. I do like wheat beers, but this one has more citrus taste to it than I prefer. Smooth and easy going down.

I would buy it again but it wouldn't be my first choice for a wheat beer.

I poured this from an inch or so from above the glass giving me a small white head above a clear honey colored beer with some dark cloudiness hanging in the middle of the glass.

The aroma is light and dominated by lemon, yet you can sense of citrus fruits, pine, and more in the background.

The taste is very much like the aroma, light but mostly lemony hops with other citrus, pine, and even a slight grass in the background.

A dry aftertaste with a slight citrus hanging around.

Not bad not not really worth drinking either, I think I'd rather spend my time drinking something else.
