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

Entry No. 2 of Craft Beer Expo. I was pleasantly surprised by this offering. Notes are from my rating scale and manual I carried with me while I was there. There's not much to this description as I was chatting it up with some girls at the tasting table. What I've jotted is all I got.

Serving style : 6 oz taster glass

Appearance (3.75) : Hazy orange glow. Around 70% opacity.

Aroma (3.5) : Strong wheat and orange fruit. Bouquet, while simple, is medium to strong.

Flavor (4) : Pleasantly hoppy, lots of malt too. Barley, orange rind, pine, and a lightly woody character.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Light bodied, creamy, wet, ending semi-dry.

Overall (3.81) : "Good wheat character with a hop bite, refreshing and sessionable." Would Buy - Yes; Would Try Again - Yes.

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.
