A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin film covering the surface and a collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and lemon citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste very much follows the smell with flavors of wheat and lemony citrus and also has some hints of soap.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The wheat also feels a little grainy and rough around the edges.
O: This beer is easy to drink and the lemony flavors make the taste a little more palatable.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thin head with low retention.
Aroma of lemon citrus and herbal hops, white bread and tea leaves.
Predominant flavor of fresh oranges, a bit of effervescent vitamin C, wheat and lemon. Lightly dry and acid aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
It does not stand up to other North Coast offerings. Quite plain and assertive, but still a very refreshing American Wheat. A Session summer beer.
