3.7/5  rDev +3.4%

A solid, delicious, refreshing wheat beer.

4.5/5  rDev +25.7%

Poured into a Mac & Jack's pint glass on 05.14.14.

A: 1/2 finger head, which recedes quickly. Yellow with a yeast cloud at the top. See through on the very bottom.

S: Strong orange, some lemon. Maybe berry. It's very sweet with an almost candy or juice like smell.

T: Orange, berry, cherry are dominant. Sweet yeast is subtle.

M: Crisp. Lots of carbonation.

O: There is no hop presence. With 17 IBU, that's not surprising. It did have a lot of carbonation, but it worked. It was a very refreshing beer.

Rating: A-

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
