This beer was purchased at Piazza Diseppoli for $7.99 a six pack. The beer was poured into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a hazy lemon yellow in the glass. The head was thick and fluffy. The head retention was ok. Rings of lacing remain on the glass.

Smell: The beer has a good lemon pepper and cloves combo. The beer has a sweet wheat smell.

Taste: The beer has a sweet wheat breadyness. This is accompanied by a combo of lemon and cloves. The beer could use a bit more hops to better balance it.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer has a light body. The beer has a stinging carbonation. The beer is an ok beer drink; however, for the money it is easy to get a better wheat beer.

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a turbulator.
Freshness date od July 2008.
1 finger cola like fizzy white head off the pour. Some spotty thin watery lace.
Color is a hazy golden unfiltered.

Aroma os lemon zest, dried hay, and lots of bready yeasty aroma.

Sweet and carbonated up front. Switching to a more gerainy flavor, lots of wheaty yeasty flavors, then at the swallow becoming more dry with a spice kick. Some sour lime rind like flavors off the linger.

Quite good and refreshing for the style. Wheats have never been my cup of rea, but this is great for the style.
