Had this one at my local Sonoma Chicken Coop, at the Alamaden Expressway location in Alamden Valley. I'll give them some credit for asking if I wanted a slice of lemon in it rather than just dunking one in. I declined the lemon. I picked up the shaker glass at the front, and this brew had the requisite hazy yellow color and some sheeting action on the glass as I sipped.

Couldn't really detect much on the nose, and the flavor was pretty weak for a hefeweizen. Just wasn't getting any of the fruitiness or spicy zip one associates with the style. The flavor was mostly wheaty malt, with a little lemon, citrus-like undertone. Had a little sourness to it, maybe from the yeast that hurt the drinkability a little in my opinion. A decent lawn mower style beer, but if I wasn't in the neighborhood, I wouldn't be going out of my way for it.
