Bleach white foamy head sits over a light, hazy yellow body. Great lacing left along the way.
Aroma is standard fare for a Belgian wheat but certainly not lacking.
Flavor starts out with smooth wheat and oats, then comes the ale fruitiness, including a white pepper hint, cardamom and coriander spices, and finally a nice hop bite. And that hop bite is what stands out the most as it’s not especially common in Belgian wheats. Body is perfectly smooth and full. Finish also has a light lemon note.
Great Divide has crafted an imminently drinkable summer seasonal with Heyday. It doesn’t stray from style, so it might not be quite as impressive or memorable as some of their other beer, but it still deserves praise for being so good and easy to drink. I just wish it wasn’t $9.99/six-pack…

Having this in a nonic pint. Pours a pearly yellow (wife said it's almost green), with no major head, light visible suspension, and kindof an oily look to the surface. Not too much to be said for the appearance, though I do give it points for some haze. Smells yeasty and funky, maybe some light lemon zest, not getting a lot off the nose, I must say. Watery, saggy mouthfeel, not much flavor, almost seems a little flat. Has a little zest to it and a medium to light sweetness, but just tastes like a watered down beer or maybe even lemonade to me. Was expecting something like a Hoegaarden but this beer does not come close. I think this is the second season they've done it and I hope it's the last. GD: give this one the boot and make a real wheat. Waste of a seasonal spot.
