Pours a hazy gold, producing a somewhat lasting, foamy, white head that leaves slim motes, streaks & wisps of lace. Aroma is sweet wheat, lemony citrus & a hint of grass. Taste is a tug-of-war between wheat, lemon & mineral water prickly carbonation with hint of grain & grass. Tongue numbing mineral/carbonation bite in the finish blocks the flavors which reappear as mineral, wheat & lemon in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with intense carbonation, crisp, very prickly but creamy among the spice bite. This pale wheat ale screams Berliner Weissbier.

This is a pretty typical wheat beer, though a bit heavier on the citrus than most. Not my favorite style, but certainly very drinkable.
