look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Ever so slightly hazy, golden, airy one finger head.

Aroma: Citrus, hops, mild. Not as fresh an aroma as some of its peers have.

Taste: Fairly mild, creamy. Some citrus and floral flavours, but it's a light variety of a hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, smooth.

Overall: Fits very hot weather, as it's extremely light, but I'd like more flavour...

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a hazy light straw color. It looks watery. The fizzy white head settles to a film of bubbles and there is decent lacing. The beers smells ... sweet and floral, but there's something in the aroma I can't pinpoint. Something metallic and tangy. The beer follows the general pattern for wheats, with it's grainy, grassy backbone, but there's something metallic and weird in this beer. The mouthfeel is light bodied, but highly carbonated.

Overall, I just didn't like this beer, period. Everything from it's appearance to taste had something about it i didn't like. I also don't like the 5.9% for a wheat beer, seems a bit high. However I don't regret trying it and I'll finish the sixer. Just not again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Lemon cream yellow with a sudsy, thick, and foamy head; decent retention and decent lacing

S: Grainy and grassy with lemon citrus and even a touch of banana and spice; this smells mostly like an American wheat but there's a touch of a German hefeweizen in there as well

T: Lemon zest up front followed by grassy grains and just a touch of banana and cloves; this is a simple yet refreshing and tasty beer--perfect for mowing the lawn, which is exactly how it came in handy just now

F: Medium body and fairly sticky which works okay

O: This is a nice little beer and like I said perfect for what it is: an easy drinking and refreshing summer beer; I think Boulder did a nice job with this one and when I want something like this again, I will return

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light yellow body with a beaten egg white head. Slight haze. Okay retention. Tight lacing. 3.5

Wheaty malts with light sweetness. Lemon twist and light hop presence. Some herbal/mint notes. 3.5

Grains are a little coarser in the taste. Banana notes and the same lemon zing, a little less juicy, pairing with very muted notes of coriander spice. Could use more of a hop presence. Refreshing flavor. No complexities needed. 4.0

Crispy carb makes for a great refreshment. Thin body, but just milky enough. 4.0

Nice summer brew from Boulder. Simple and quenching. 4.0

A- Pours a slightly hazy straw with a finger of bubbly white head that dissipates and leaves some light lacing

S- Floral yeast and some light citrus, banana

T- Floral notes and yeast at the beginning, quickly changes to a nice wheat breadiness and some very light hop, banana tones to finish

M- Light carbonation and body, smooth, fits the style

O- Has some good qualities for a wheat: light, floral, refreshing. Although not a style I usually go for, this one is good
