Appearance: Pours translucent gold but does not appear heavily carbonated. Thin white foam head. Interesting in how bright the beer is.
Smell: Can smell a bit of the tangy citrus, less grapefruit and more lemon. Not much else.
Taste: Immediately notice the tangy and sour-ish taste. Not overpowering but immediately apparent. Trying to wade through the tang, picking up some lemon and grape notes (like wine).
Mouthfeel: Very light and modestly dry, with just right amount of carbonation. Tongue is picking up the sourness which fades to light sweetness.
Overall: Big fan, good beer for a hot summer day. I do not particularly like sour ales but this is only very lightly sour, and otherwise a light dry pleasant wheat beer. I would pick up another one of these if I was going to the beach or something.

Popped the top to an aroma of someone farting in a wet bathing suit in a hot car. Tart is accurate, which paired well with my dry numb pallet after a pack of newports. Pretty run of the mill wheat beer. Glad I only bought a single. Whoever said it tastes like blue moon was spot on.

12 oz bottle, enjoy by 6/22/14. Pours hazy yellow-white with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass a little.
The aroma is wheat malts with some lactic acid tartness.
The flavor is sweet bready wheat malts with a little lemoney fruit and slight tart lactic acid. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some spritzy carbonation.
Overall, reminds me of a gose, but a bit sweeter and more wheaty.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle says enjoy by May 25th, 2014.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellowish golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A fairly tart and zesty wheat malt forward aroma with good hints of citrus and spice. Upfront wheat and pale malt with hints of straw, biscuit, grains, and cracker. Spice hints of coriander and pepper. Citrus fruit hints of lemon zest and orange. Somewhat floral and acidic. A pretty solid wheat ale aroma.
Taste: Like the nose, a zesty, tart, and somewhat acidic wheat malt driven taste with good notes of citrus and spice. Wheat and pale malt with some notes of biscuit, straw, crackers, and grains. Notes of coriander and some pepper spicing. Zesty citrus fruit notes of lemon and orange. Slight notes of floral hops in the background. A pretty solid crisp wheat taste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Crisp, creamy, spritzy, and slightly acidic. Very smooth.
Overall: A solid light and refreshing wheat ale. Nice tart citrus presence.
