On-tap, served in a pint

Appears a cloudy yellow with a bone white head. Good retention and moderate lacing.

The nose is of clean biscuit malt and tart lemons with a heavy dose of dry wheat. Clean and bright.

The wheat offers a nice contrasting sweetness to the tart lemons. Not a whole heck of a lot going on here. This is a pretty straightforward take on the style. Would have liked a little more sourness, but the tradeoff is this is light, crisp, and refreshing.

Light-bodied, clean. Carbonation isn't as high as others in the style, but it works, producing a smooth, dry, and refreshing beverage.

This is a pretty standard take on the style but is still a solid version. Clean and refreshing, mild tartness.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

appearance - light pale yellow with (maybe i was too drunk) a bit of green. well carbonated, not much of a head but very active and decent lacing.

smell - not so impressed here, green apple, minor tart.

taste - much of the same business.

mouthfeel - a bit sugary but it seems a bit more tart once its been in your mouth a while

not overly impressed but its still good by all means.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy golden straw color, thousands of tiny bubbles throughout forming an active prickly white head that lasts. Scent is muted, tart wheat with some lemony citrus and a faint kiss of herbalness. Taste brings the pungent tartness expected from the style, backbone has a kiss of citrus rind, light fruityness on top of husky grain. A shoot of traditional Woodruff ads an even more herbal presence then initially found in the taste. Lighter side of medum bodied, prickly but almost thin. A decent beer all around, but does not stand out in any one particular aspect.
