look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
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.
Serving type: on-tap
