look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Upon opening there is one finger white head maybe less than a finger. It laces a bit and the head does not retain that well. The color is a straw gold. Bubbles sporadically rise to the top but there is no consistency in the carbonation by appearance.

Smells of grain to a certain extent and amounts of wheat here and there. Malts here and there. The smell is not incredibly aromatic but its at least there.

The taste makes up for the appearance and smell. The taste is much more strongly of wheat than anticipated. Some grain and a little malt comes in thereafter. It has a nice wheat-y bitterish taste that is pleasing.

This beer has a good amount of carbonation maybe a bit much. Its slick and not too sticky which is good. Overall is goes well with the taste.

Overall, I have tasted wheat beers that have been much better in all aspects that are aromatic and have strong tastes which I look for. However, it presents a lighter wheat beer for those who aren't into the strength of most.

My coworker is signed to a beer of the month club and was kind enough to share this with me.
This pour hazy yellow with a rock white head.

There is a crispy kind of sharpness with soft wheat and citrus hops aroma at first in the with moderat sulfar note that diminishes after a couple of minutes.

Moderate wheat flavor with a moderate hop bitterness both lasting into the crisp finish. There is a medium-low citrus hops flavor in there as well

This has a medium light body with a medium-high level of carbonation.

This is an easy to drink refreshing beer. It's too bad the nose is off for the first couple of minutes but the flavor is just fine.

A: Pale, cloudy yellow hue with a huge frothy head; lacing is good

S: Grainy with a big dose of citrus; lemon rind, lemon, pepper, coriander, very grassy and grainy--this smells pretty good though maybe a touch one dimensional

T: Simple but tasty; quite grainy; lots of the wheat along with grass but also lots of lemon and lemon rind--really pretty refreshing

F: Well carbonated; medium body; a touch thin on the back end

O: This is a summer session beer; really drinkable; it's simple and I"m not always a huge fan of the style but this is pretty good nonetheless

Hazy yellow beer with nice hints of amber and a sea-foamy shock white head on top. Nice retentive sheet on top. Fresh and citrusy on the nose, big notes of wheat that combine with the citrus to make for a nice nose. Even something a little funky in there, a hint of that farmhousey yeast that goes with Belgian wheat beers. Not bad.

Nice and soft body from the wheat that lets the flavors come out pretty nicely. Pleasant notes of citrus and wheat with a touch of toasty bread notes from the barley. The citrus comes in on the back side, partly from the very mild bitterness from the hops. These hops seem to have imparted more of their flavor than the bitterness, giving out a nice lemony citrus in the back end that brings the beer around into a big refreshing circle. A hint of that yeast comes through, imparting a slight bit of funk to the citrus and wheat flavors. It is a welcome taste. Great with the smooth mouthfeel and easy going nature. Clean and crisp mouthfeel that puts a bow on it.

Nice little hints of complexities with this beer, but it is better enjoyed as an easy going sipper on a hot summer day that you could drink while barbecuing.

Pours a smooth golden color, two fingers wide head at the top, poured into a wheat beer glass. Smells strongly of wheat and citrus. More lemony smell than any other wheat beer I've had. Mouthfeel is pretty light, feels like a wheat beer. Tasting of lots of lemon, just like the smell. Goes down smooth, you can definitely taste the wheat behind the citrus. Lemon aftertaste, but not sour. My favorite wheat beer.
