I purchased this at Wegman's enjoyed chilled in a cervoise from the chilled 12oz brown bottle.

The color is a deeply hazed golden with fine bead and light lace with visible carbonation rising to the small white head. The smell is tangy citrus with smell of light hops in the aroma with mild herbal scent. The feel has spritzy cabonation with light bitterness and gentle sweetness with very dry finish and relatively light body.

The taste is slightly bitter with herbal hop flavors initially and light orange taste with a mild wheat toastiness and slightly grassy hop edge with gentle tangy yeast combined with wheat flavors and hint of spice in the nutty dry finish. Overall I enjoyed this it is drinkable and kind of like a white IPA but it has more wheat with a mild yeast flavor throughout.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Yeah, name a beer after that particular character in Hamlet. Nothing iffy there, nossir... Anyway, this stuff pours a partly cloudy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises flowers, mixed greens, powdered sugar, honey, and oats. The taste holds notes of lemon zest, orange peel, flowers, powdered sugar, light honey, and some mild grass that sits on the tongue through the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a meek hoppy wheat, one where the hops don't really blend seamlessly with the base. It's alright at best.
