2.15/5 rDev -33.2%
A- Bright gold with a light haze. Looks a lot like BMC. Head immediately fades to a small ring showing no lacing.
S- lots of sulfur, a little doughy grain, corn, bready yeast
T- pretty light and bland, light grain, some strange light bitterness in the finish with a husky dry graininess.
M- thin, an vaguely watery.
O- this beer comes off as more of a slightly bitter macro lager than what I would expect from an unfiltered wheat. Disappointing.

3.26/5 rDev +1.2%
a leftover bottle in the fridge from my wife's beer purchasing, enjoyed chilled in a mug.
The color is deep golden with good clarity and thick white cream with fine bead. The head retention is very good with lace sticking in streamers. The smell is faintly malty with a light spice odor possibly a mild hop if you swirl, but mainly a mild sulfur odor of yeast. The feel is gentle dry for the most part, highly carbonated and gently sweet.
The taste is decent, not exceptional but the flavor of wheat is mild with a slightly yeasty flavor and gentle spice adding to a pretty bland overall taste, some malt flavor but it is timid. Overall this is probably not the best choice of wheat even though it is brewed locally and should be fresh it just has a dullness that I will avoid and don't recommend this.
