Hazy mucky lemonade color. Nice little whipped foam topper.

Some hoppy white grapefruit, some other citrus rind, a wheaty aroma, and the unmistakable aroma of cooked broccoli. Even with an olive oil drizzle. A little odd, but decent.

Dry citrus burst. Some light wheatness, at the most pale. Still, flavorful malts. More vegetable-like notes... maybe greens or carrot. A unique pale wheat. Carries the hoppiness that it suggests. Also, pushes a lot of sudsy carb. Good spring seasonal.

Poured into a tulip. Hazy color typical for a wheat beer. Thin foamy head with slight lacing on the side of the glass. Slight piney, wheat smell. Pale wheat taste with slight hop bitterness midway through the drink. Mild bitter aftertaste. Wheat taste does overpower the bitterness a bit. Wheat beer was my first love when it came to craft beers, but I have become more of a hop head. So, I do enjoy the combination, but I wish it was more hoppy. It is definitely a beer I can enjoy and would gladly drink again.
