Pours an opaque orange color and almost no head? Surprising for a wheat where I’m used to a big, frothy, aromatic, head. Faint orange peel aroma. Light bodied, lacking in spice but has a little bit of fruit in the flavor with an unusually hoppy back bone in there as well. Not a great representative of this style but not a bad beer as a whole.

Tap

Pours a light hazy golden with a white lacing for a head.

Smells of grassy malts and citrusy notes.

Flavor follows, lemon citrus and grassy malts, also with a hint of coriander.

Light body with a sting of carbonation on the tongue.

Fairly decent and refreshing wheat ale, nothing special but gets the job done.

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.
