22oz. brown bottle, no date information.

Hazy golden sunshine. Short, quickly receding head of off tan bubbles that left a skim coat and a short collar, but no lacing. Only a few lazy carbonation streams rise. Light wheat with some clove and gum aromas. Lemon pith and cloves up front and carrying through the finish. There is a bit of lemon zest that rises as well, and the finish is short. Light to medium body with active carbonation creates a refreshing mouthfeel. There is a slightly tart component that lingers briefly. Refreshing overall, and the wheat notes are somewhat downplayed.

Thanks go out to Heath for trucking me a box of fresh CO beers on a recent east coast visit.

Pours a slightly hazed pale yellow color with a one inch bright white head. Decent retention.

Aroma is decent. Pretty typical, but some citrus notes, as well as the familiar tone. Kind of tangy and sweet.

Taste is fine. Some citrus and slightly spicey. A maltier finish. Not a whole lot there, kind of thin and lacking flavor.

Mouthfeel is fairly thin and watery with plenty of carbonation.

Drinkability is moderate. Very sessionable, but kind of boring and uninspiring.
