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

A - light, clear, yellow with a soft, bubbly, white head that settles to a short cap

S - wheat, lemon

T - straw, wheat, some faint bread, light lemon

M - light bodied, crisp, decent carbonation

This is a pretty simple, forgettable beer. It's light and refreshing, but it lacks flavor. It would be nice to have one of these on a hot day, but this isn't a beer I'm looking to buy again.

The appearance is pretty good: Cloudy, slight golden color, with a bright white head that laces nicely. The aroma is definitely wheaty, with some pepper, and hints of citrus and spices. The taste isn't as nice, but not bad and really sort of average, with some wheaty notes, mild citrus if you dig, a sort of nuttiness, and bready malts. Feels slightly astringent, with some creaminess and more of a medium body.

I despised the IPA, but this is decent enough...though I wouldn't have much desire to seek it out again and glad I could snare only a single.

Got a six-pack of these to try at Whole Foods today because they were on sale and I like wheat beers - a winning combination. I found this beer to be unremarkable, but in a good way. Although it is not an outstanding beer, it is not bad either. On the whole, I found it well-balanced and refreshing with no weaknesses that needed overlooking - very drinkable and worth having another.

My wife bought a six pack home and we had a few last night. Having another today so I can review.

12 oz brown longneck with no freshness dating and kind of a cool, yet simple label. I did like the bottle cap.

Poured into my SA perfect pint, the beer is a hazy light gold with an off-white head.

Nose of biscuits, a bit of citrus (lemon) and a little grain.

The taste is slightly tart with a hint of lemon grass all backed by the wheat. It is refreshing on this very hot day. I think the beers hits the mark for this style. Not overly complex, but it is refreshing.

The mouth is has very active carbonation laid over a nice slick mouth. I think the carbonation could be dialed down a notch.

I liked this beer. It reminds me a bit of a 312 and I don't think that is a bad thing!

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a very hazy straw color. The head is a two finger white shade, featuring a nice frothiness and acceptable retention. Thin rings of lacing are left behind.

S: Very similar, I think, to Blue Moon. There's the same kind of muddled orange peel note, a touch of spice, and even a bit of cereal grain that reminds me of the crafty stalwart. Some wheat character comes through in spurts. All in all, not particularly impressive.

T: At first, it's vaguely citrusy, with just the faintest hint of general coriander. On the finish, I'm getting a slight cereal grain character, and not much else. It's really bland, and not terribly drinkable to make up for it. Meh.

M: It tries to be creamy, but the strange astringency makes sure that doesn't really happen. It's sort of generically sweet and heavy, killing the drinkability. And yet, it's still watery...

O: I like how the bottle freely admits its crafty beer - it's almost as if it's telling you not to buy it! And you shouldn't either. Honestly, it's lower than Blue Moon on the wheat beer totem pole, and that's really a bad place to be.

Wheaty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone and a hint of sweet lemon. Pours a hazy solar yellow with a fluffy and somewhat persistent white head that leaves some good lacing. Yeasty flavor has a firm wheaty note and a hint of lemon. Smooth texture is firm, but not very fizzy. Overall, a decent, if not outstanding, wheat beer - still, good for a hot summer day.
