Not a bad wheat brew, by any means. All of the beers brewed at the OBX Brewing Station are well-crafted. This one is no exception. It could stand to have a nit more inthe way of wheat aroma and pounch in the flavor department, but worth a try. Prost!

I had a sample of this at the Brew Pub Sunday. Noticed that it got fairly good reviews. I thought this was the weakest beer I had out of the four. Poured a pale yellow with very little head (none of the samplers had much of a head). It was cloudy like a wheat beer with a citrus aroma. The initial taste was a mild, soft wheat beer. The followup however was like someone poured lemon juice concentrate into the beer. No subtlety here. A blast of strong lemon juice. The mouthfeel was about right for a wheat beer (not too watery). The blast of lemon juice keeps this from being very drinkable as a session beer. Would pick something else to quench my thirst as well.

Served as part of the 4 beer sampler at the OBX Brewing Station.

Similar in appearance to the Olsch, but a cloudier yellow with more drifting white foam. Very faint smell, certainly not a hefe that bursts forth with banana clove - subdued.

Taste is quite wheaty with notes of citrus. Comes together ok, but not outstanding. Just good.

Drinkable - but I liked the Olsch better.

Pours a cloudy deep gold with copious amounts of soapy white head.

Smells of spices (maybe cloves) and wheat with some lemon citrus in the background.

Tastes more like a hefeweizen than any of the pale wheat ales I've had, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Lots of lemon rind and wheat, but there is almost no hop profile to this one.

Medium in body, much like a good pale ale with plentiful carbonation and a smooth finish. This is a perfect refreshing beer to enjoy after a long hot day on the beach and I will certainly reach for another next time I'm at the Outer Banks.

Picked this growler up at the brewpub yesterday and kept cold in my cooler for the trip home.

Pours a murky brownish yellow/orange in color. Like a tangerine that went overripe. Big white head that disappears quickly but is very aromatic with lots of lemon. Nose of the beer has more of the lemon and just some slight hints of wheat.

Not sure if there is lemongrass in this beer but this is how I imagine lemongrass would taste. Zesty lemons. Some lighter tones of sweetness from the wheat. Kind of reminds me of Sam Adams Summer Ale and its "grains of paradise." Full mouthfeel that is a bit cloying. That lemon flavor really stick around. Nice summer beer to enjoy while I work in the yard and watch football.
