Great mouth feel, not to much carbonation. Subtle flavor, good wheat taste with notes of cream or cream soda? A little sweet also. . No to chewy like one would think of a hef. Its a little on the pricy side, but you get allot and the flavor is well worth it. Also love supporting local, West Coast Breweries.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a short head consistently covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, flavors of wheat stand out in the overall taste along with some hints of grainy malts.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer neither tastes like a hefeweizen nor a witbier—it seems to resemble more of an American Pale Wheat Ale because it lacks banana esters and flavors of coriander.

Served on tap in a weizen glass

Appearance – Served a hazy-golden orange colored brew with a billowy one finger white head. The head had some good staying power with it lasting some time before fading to leave streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma was rather light overall consisting of a bit of wheat, lemon, orange and banana. While still rather light, the heaviest of the aromas were that of yeast and some spice of coriander and ginger.

Taste – The taste was mild upfront consisting of a light wheat and bready flavor with a moderately strong citrus flavor. The citrus was predominantly of an orange nature with hints of lemon mixed within. A yeasty flavor develops quickly in the taste, leaving a rather pasty yeast cake taste on the tongue. The wheat and bread flavors intensify some more toward the end balancing out the yeast and when combined with a bit of ginger spice one is left with a more bready and lightly spiced flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is rather light with a carbonation level that is rather average. The combination of the two make for a smooth feel, which is rather appropriate for the yeasty and bready flavors of the brew.

Overall – An alright brew, but noting too exciting. Worth a try but not one I will likely come back to again.
