This one pours an mostly clear and pale gold. A bit more clear than I would expect for a Wheat ale. The head thick and white, very fluffy and long lived as well as leaving decent lacing down the glass.

The nose is sharp hops and malted that is coated with subtle undertones of bread, citrus and some floral notes.

The flavor is a nicely hopped wheat that has a nice semi-fruity malt that is nearly perfectly balanced. There are flavors of bread, lemon, that is finished by the blend of hops that have a nice clean finish.

The mouthfeel is adequate for a wheat ale, a bit watery but not bad.

Overall this one is very drinkable, tasty and not too heavy. I really like it and look forward to drinking more. I see this as a great companion beer to spicy foods like Super hot wings and real boiled crawfish that are not made for tourist.

Looks inviting enough in the narrow Einbecker glass, with a hazy pale amber color and professional-looking white suds. A whiff of malt with a spicy hint. Pleasant prickly carbonation on the tongue. Very light bodied, though the sudsiness makes it seem thicker and there is some malty substance.

This is more of a cross between an American Wheat and a light Hefeweizen. There is not any actual spicy German esters, but it's more flavorful and warm. Some toasty and sugar cookie flavors with a lemony hint. Just the faintest bitter tinge.

Rating as an American Wheat it's well above average. From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.

This beer was similar to the 312 Urban Ale I had the same night, but I slightly preferred the Urban Wheat, since at least this beer had ~some~ flavor. And that flavor is: wheat (no surprise there). Not an incredibly complex or challenging beer, but the wheat flavor is fairly strong here, which adds a nice sweetness to the beer and brings to mind sitting on lawns in the summer (in my mind at least). Moderate hops and carbonation. Because this beer has a fairly strong wheat flavor, its a little more of a slow-drinking beer than the Urban Ale, but you'll pay more attention to it.

Serving type: on-tap
