Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint glass.
A: Slightly hazy, pale golden color with less than one finger of white foam head. No lacing remains on the glass and large solitary bubbles occasionally rise in the column while more bubbles gather on the floor of the glass.
S: Unmalted wheat grain is doughy, with some weak mixed citrus also detectable. Other yeasty fruit is mild, but too apparent for the smell to really be described as clean.
T: Begins off-dry, with refined bready grain that is soon overwhelmed by juicy orange citrus. Acidity is pronounced but appropriate, considering the other prominent citrus quality. Existing flavors relax during the middle while some honey and a fine thread of herbaceous hops are noted for the first time. The finish is short and clean, but still bready, with minimal bitterness.
M: Medium viscosity, cleansing on the palate, with aggressive carbonation.
D/O: This beer is intended to not offend, and that is about all it is good at. It is a typical representative of its style--it tries nothing new or interesting, and succeeds at it. As a thirst-quencher it could even be more effective if the texture was somewhat thinner and smoother.

Pours a straw yellow color, cloudy with a lot of carbonation. Forms a very large white head.
Smell is very bread like, malt and yeast dominate. Wheat and a slight pepper aroma as well.
Not surprisingly, wheat is very much up front in the flavor. Bit of malt and yeast in there, and a hint of citrus. Finishes with just a slight hint of pepper.
Feel is about average, you really notice the carbonation as you drink it.
A decent beer, but nothing really stands out. No major flaws, just an easy drinking beer. It may not be too complex, but has enough flavor to make it worth trying.
