Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Chris (BA’s heresy22)
Consumed: April 17, 2014
Misc.: Best by June 29, 2014
Poured a golden, straw, hazy color with 4-to-5 fingers of frothy, spongy, white head. Good amount of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention.
Smelled orange, citrus hops, floral hops, wheat, honey grass, lemon and a bit of Sprite soda.
Tasted a bit better than the smell. Got Sprite soda, sweet sugary notes, citrus hops, floral hops, honey, lemon grass, wheat, kiwi and green grapes.
Light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt finish.
A pretty good wheat ale. Would be a great beer after mowing the lawn. Nice for the summer.
Serving type: can

Generally a style I avoid, but this was a pretty damn tasty pale wheat. I was very pleasantly surprised by this one.
Moderate spice and earthiness before a relatively mild, lemony lactic tartness at the finish. Light and refreshing on a hot day, I'd have it again.

4.08/5 rDev +17.2%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a clear pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a nice light yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that fades quickly, and it leaves a slight sticky lacing after.
Smell: Sweet wheat and slight spices of coriander and clove. A light whiff of lemon.
Taste: It's initially sweet and wheaty with a good malt and yeast combo, then it finishes with a slight lemony sourness that is really appealing to me (I love sour beers).
Mouthfeel: Slightly slick and creamy with a nice smooth and slightly sour finish on the tongue.
Overall: I love wheat beers and I love Flemmish sour ales, so this was a winner for me. Not overly tart or vinegary with the sourness like some sours, and it's all balanced very well with a good wheat beer. I really like this one.
