Poured from the can - one of the sharper looking cans on the market.
Translucent golden yellow, with swirls of sediment settling to the bottom, like tails rotating out of a summer wall cloud. Lends some opaqueness, while a thin white head leaves slight rings behind.
A lightly-hopped wheat on the nose, with both being apparent, but relatively subtle. Allusions to lemon there as well.
Wheat, but with a green hoppy twist - very fresh, almost to the point of needing a little more time to mellow out. With a bit of citrus, tastes like a near harvest wheat field smells - grassy, bready, but still with hints of its previous greenery.
Good carbonation and more body than you might expect in the mouth, closing crisply. A good summertime wheat beer.
Good, but not great. Happy for the folks at Tallgrass, as they continue to produce quality beers.
