This beer pours a clear straw yellow color with a decent amount of foamy white head that leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass. There is a constant surge of bubbles that shoot through the glass from the base to the top.

On the nose its pretty mild but its easy to pick out the bready wheat smell. Can't really detect any hops or malt though.

Flavor wise its alot more of the same, the wheat is really the only thing that is easily distinguishable. Its on the watery side and the aftertaste is kind of funky.

It has a good amount of carbonation; not too much but just enough to give it some fizzy definition. This beer would be decent on a hot summer day but I wouldn't say its very refreshing because of the wheat overload.

4.08/5  rDev +31.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Consumed April 29th, 2012 from a standard pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

Beer pours a clear, light golden, very similar to a standard macro lager. A one-finger white head composed of fairly fine bubbles crowns this brew.

Aroma is tangy, sweet wheat. Hints of honey and an unidentifiable herbal note. Interesting.

Mouthfeel is somewhat thick with tingly carbonation present as well.

Flavor: sweet with husky grain, honey and clover. Light and citrusy with wheat tang. Tiniest bit of alcohol and juicy fruit character at the end.

To say I was pleasantly surprised by this offering would be an understatement. I would gladly drink this beer again, especially on a warm day.
