2.8/5 rDev -17.6%
Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Sounds like a euphemism for something... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light wheat, very light grass, and a decent smattering of watered-down lemonade. The taste brings in more of the same, with the lemonade definitely not watered-down anymore: it's in your face, together with a bit of orange rind for good measure. Things on the tongue just spiting the absolute hell out of the label for it's fallacious "hint of citrus" comment. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, just too much citrus for this stuff to work, especially considering the consequent lack of any other character.

3.7/5 rDev +8.8%
Served in a Magic Hat/Fox & Parrot pint glass that the owner gave me for the hell of it.
A: Poured a very saturated, peppery orange color, with only a slight haze for a head.
S: Got more orange juice than spice, with a candy-like flair overall. Nice.
T: A bit thin and one dimensional, but with a nice wheat bill. Not yeasty in any way.
M: The extremely low carbonation is a problem to my mind, as well as the sugar bill which detracts from its drinkability.
O: Overall, not a bad beer, but I like my wheats with a bit more velvet.

I'm a biased Colorado resident, but I do enjoy this beer quite a bit. Not the best Hefe but still an enjoyable beer.
Pour: Light Yellow/golden. Looks like a disgusting macro lager
Smell: Lemon and wheat, that's about it.
Taste: Sweet, slight lemon flavor with a strong wheat flavor. Perfect on a nice summer day, or in my case, a few beers in front of a Monday night football game.
Mouthfeel: Very light and refreshing
Overall it's not a complex flavorful brew, but a nice refreshing option none the less. Tommy Knocker makes some solid beers for sure. If you are a Hefeweizen lover then it's definitely worth a try. Personally I prefer Swetty Betty Blonde from Boulder Beer Company.
