Poured from bottle into pint glass at buffalo wild wings in Hammond, LA. Aside from the typical Abita brew on tap, this was the extent of the craft beer selection - and this is one of two left in the cooler.
Pours a golden color with no head...it looks like the miller lite currently being consumed by the guy next to me. Very faint citrus fruity banana aroma, but mostly malt. Taste again is slight fruity malt with a hint of noble hops. Slight wheaty taste and feel. Some slight banana ish flavors. Its an ok brew, but I would never choose this over anything else...sad this is the only micro here...
I won't get again.

Pours a clear, golden body with a small, though dense, white head.

Aromas of soft white wheat and lemon citrus with a slight underlying note of yeast.

The tastes begins with pale, wheat malts with a tiny pop of sugared sweetness. As it warms you get some lemon-flavored candy and very minor, spicy hops and bitterness. Sip of cool, clean water.

The mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Hints of doughy yeast with a light wheaty finish.

Overall this is just a thin bodied, slightly sweet, something wheaty beer, with few high points, even on a warm day.

Pours golden "blonde" into a pint glass with a frothy head that stays almost completely still as I drink it.

Smell is extremely pleasant. Banana first comes to mind with a slight hint of citrus. One of the best smelling wheat's I've come across.

Taste is very similar to smell. A hint of banana up front with hoppy and lemon notes. Little bit of a clove aftertaste for me. I love this stuff.

Mouthfeel is light but still passes my test. Great for drinking several of them at a time, you'll just keep going back for more.

Overall I can say this is definitely one of my favorite beers to date. I am a huge fan of wheat beers, though. For someone looking for an incredible amount of flavor you might want something else, but for an easy drinking and delicious beer you can't beat one of these. I'd love to try it on tap at some point.
