look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

3.03/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fizzy white finger width head. Poor retention, resulting in a poor, spotty lace.

Smell - Smells faintly of mellow banana and some grassy, floral hops.

Taste - Weak notes of banana and a grassy hop... saved by decent amount of clove spice. Finishes with that spice and a bit of coriander.

Mouthfeel - Watery body, with a near dead carbonation.

Overall - My buddy recommended this beer, and I think maybe he was playing an evil trick on me. Terribly weak from nearly every possible angle, this is not a wheat beer that I'd care to try again.

3.18/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance –Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a one finger head. The head fades slowly over time to give a fair amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was heaviest of bread with lighter notes of caramel and some yeast. Mixed with this was a very light lemon citrus hop aromas as well as some banana.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter malt taste with strong caramel and wheat tastes. As the flavor advances the sweetness fades slightly with notes of a lemon hop flavor coming to the tongue. This takes the taste to the end were it mixes with yeast and banana flavors to leave a satisfying flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeeel – The brew was on the average side in body with a medium level of carbonation. Both are fitting for the flavors but nothing spectacular.

Overall –Very easy drinking, but a little subtle and boring for the most part.
