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%

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.
