I'm a bit surprised at some of the earlier reviews for this beer. I don't know if it has been revised at some point but a lot of the descriptions don't seem to match the batch I'm drinking.

The appearance for starters, is a deep copper color. On the pour there's a full but fleeting head for this style. The smell is pleasant with strong notes of hops and citrus fruit.

The taste is excellent. Light as you would expect from a wheat beer, with greater depth from the malt, hops, and citrus. It comes just to the line of crossing over into being too "hoppy". I'm definitely a fan of this brewery now, having tried a few of their other offerings and this beer in particular. I know a beer is good when I'm surprised out how quickly I'm emptying a glass.

@ Goose Island, O'Hare

Clear gold with a quick to dissipate head.

Mild cascade citrus aroma. Bubble gum. Bread dough dominant as it warms.

Snappy: mild clove spice and prickly hop spice make it so. Fruity pebbles like Leinenkuge'ls but better.
