2.8/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

pours a golden straw hue with a frothy white thin head that leaves a spot or two of lace. aroma is relatively non-existent... straw and pale malt as it warms, with hints of chemicals and earth. taste is pale and weak. hints of wheat, hints of straw. a bit grassy. not really getting the lemon except in a funky citric finish. mouth is light with an overbearing offensive carbonation that kind of burns and kills any light enjoyable flavor that might be hiding in there. wanted to like this one, but it just falls short of being anything impressive.

3.21/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Shock Top glass.

The color is a hast yellow/orange with a finger or two foamy white head that stats for a short while but dissolves without a trace on the glass.

The smell has some touches of coriander and lemongrass with a wheaty aroma that takes center stage. There is a light malt presence that contributes to the lightness of the nose and gives a small twang.

The taste is Wheaty at first before giving up some of that smooth fruit flavor that slides into the margins of this beer bordering the outside edge and keeping things together as things slide into slight punchy end where the hops hide till the very end.

This beer is light bodied and is really drinkable with its low ABV and easy drinking feel. The crisp feel adds to dry lip smacking wheat flavor and makes for a great summer drinker.

2.56/5  rDev -23.4%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

12oz. Brown Bottle

A: Pours pale, clear, straw yellow. Small white head dies to nothing within seconds. No lacing.

S: Wheat and lemon. Some spicy notes.

T/M: Lemon. Wheat. Light malt sweetness. Cereal grains. Hop flavor is almost nonexistent. Light bodies with a nice carbonation tingle. Watery. The finish is mostly clean.

O: An okay summer brew. Almost a wheat ale, but is lacking in flavor. I would consider this a shandy. There are much better "summer" beers around to enjoy.

Cheers!
