Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden-yellow color with a tiny white fizzy head. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foam on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a lightly toasted wheat smell mixed with a little bit of orange and lemon. Some more yeasty and grassy aromas are there as well and are mixed with the aforementioned as well as a small amount of a floral aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a light wheaty and slightly cracker flavor with some orange sweetness. A yeasty flavor develops later on in the taste all while the orange flavor dwindles with it being replaced by a little bit of lemon and grapefruit. Some grainy flavors as well as a bit of a grassy hop come to the tongue at the very end, leaving a rather crisp and light wheat flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light in nature with a crisp feel and a higher carbonation. For the mix of wheat and citrus as well as the lighter abv. of the brew, the thin body and high carbonation are rather appropriate for make for a nice crisp and refreshing brew.

Overall – Not a flavor powerhouse, but a good sessionable drinker on a nice warm summer day. An alright brew overall.
