Pours a super effervescent/hazed straw color with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Near perfect lacing & head retention

S: Wheattyness & grass

T: Follows the nose, a bit of lemon as well, some tartness & peppery notes up front. More grassiness, tartness & lemon zest as this warms, plus dryness & a bit of green apples. Finishes tart with green apples & lemon zest

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation,

Drinks very easy, didn't really push the hops forward, but this would a nice summer time beer around here

they call this a hoppy wheat, but it all seemed a bit subdued to me. barley hazy pale yellow liquid and a thin white film for head. the nose is wheat malt first, hops second. not overly exciting by any means, but seemingly well crafted and light enough to drink a bunch of. nothing about this really pops in terms of flavor. good ale yeast and fresh wheat leave a mark, but the hops arent where i expected them to be after reading the description. its a little citrusty, but the fuller wheat body covers up a lot of the hops. its a good beer with food, as its plenty full flavored, but it lacks an exciting or distinguishing element to me. clean finish, good bubbles. its a high C or a low B for me, par for the breckenridge course.

Serving type: on-tap
