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.
