Really bad luck with draft overpours, lately. This beer was served to me, short on head room. Has a faded apricot color with swirly haze. No lacing occurs.

Very mild in aroma with wheat grain tang, pale sweetness, peach hard candy, and elements of citrus and floral notes. A high 3.5.

More sweetness and the same. Wheat is the primary flavor, but it's short of bready. That artificial peach candy note is evident, along with hints of tangerine and floral hop bitterness. Remains juicy without ample hoppiness. Even the body seems like a glaze in the mouth. Wet enough to wash down, but this would be better if it was drier. More bubbles would help, also.

Slightly hazy golden with modest ivory head.

Notes of wheat and soft fruity esters are subtle in aroma. Hop aroma is lacking.

Flavor is wheat dominant, with earthy hops at the dry finish and a touch of grainy character. Becomes bready in the aftertaste.

Body is light, with moderate carbonation.

The finish becomes minerally. Strange for the style. Just not much there.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a hazy yellow-orange color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head has a very light level of retention, fading quite fast to leave some decent foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer heaviest of a wheaty bread smell mixed with some hints of citrus of lemon and a bit of orange.

Taste – The taste begins with a crisp wheat flavor mixed with a light citrus lemon flavor. As the taste advances the wheatiness takes on a grainier like nature with the lemon growing stronger as the flavor advances as well. Some yeast and a bit of hay and grass work their way onto the tongue more toward the end of the taste, mixing with the rest of the flavors to leave a crisp, wheaty and lightly citrus flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side to slightly thicker side for a brew of only 4.5 % abv. with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the style the feel is very nice as the high carbonation really makes for a refreshing and crisp drinker, while the average to slightly thicker body really nicely accentuates the wheat flavors.

Overall – A rather crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking wheat beer with a good blend of citrus and wheat. A nice summer style brew.
