A: hazy; golden - darker than most summers and wheats; a one finger pillowy white head that receded quickly; no lacing;

S: lemon; wheat;

T: wheat with a little hops; lemon is less pronounced that in the nose; a touch of lemon rind bitterness in the finish;

M: light bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp;

O: refreshing; I'm not usually a fan of summer or wheat beers; this is one of the ones I like; I think it's the touch of bitterness in the finish;

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a pale straw color with a half finger of head that dissipated quickly. The nose was yeasty. The body was light. The flavor profile was fairly bland with a semi-interesting mild dryness on the finish.

I was looking for something relatively light today and this fit the bill more or less – nothing to write home about or repeat.

This is a pale yellow-gold color with a thin white head. The aroma has a subtle wheat scent, and the taste has a faint twang. No real hop presence, but there is a little fruit and a slight spice and flower note. Medium to light in mouthfeel. It's a reasonable summer brew. Nothing outstanding.
