A- hazy light golden brew with a rocky off white head. Head retention is poor, and the lacing is decent.

S- citrus! Grapefruit, clementine, lemon. There is some grain in there as well.

T- light wheat and malt with an astringent grapefruit finish. Not too much going on.

M- it's light with lively and prickly carbonation, which it should be.

O- it's a pale wheat ale, plain and simple.
