I drank this on tap at the Piece Brewery.

It was a pale golden color with a nice white head.

It smelled light and fruity with only a tinge of hops.

It tasted ok, a complete sessional, could crush this all night long, but so many other flavors on tap its not something I would continue to drink.

Currently on-tap at the brewpub.

Drank an imperial pint, and had a growler to-go.

Hazy orange body, clingy carbonation on the walls of the glass. Short cap of foam that hangs out long enough.

Smell is a little non-descript, malty and wheaty, a touch sweet.

Flavors mainly of wheat and pale malt, the barest hint of apple or citrus rind. Mild bitterness, and it could use alot more citrus. Decent carbonation, and very drinkable on a 90º day. Overall this was ok, not the best Wheat i've come across. Better than 312, but it can't hold a candle to Gumballhead, Oberon, etc.

This beer seemed like a pale version of the Anniversary Ale I also had at Piece. Cloudy gold color brew served MAD cold. I suffered from brainfreeze for the first 5 minutes I drank it I think. Nose was citrusy.

Taste, too, was citrusy and lemony--and seemed like a "hard iced tea". Big fruity iced tea taste, notes of mint. Nice hop dryness at the conclusion. Pretty refreshing--but the iced tea taste was too over-the-top for me.
