Poured from a 12 oz shorty bottle into a Lost Abbey chalice.

A- Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a 2" off-white head. Lacing coats half of the glass.

S- honey, orange, citrus some spice

T- pale malts, sweet citrus (orange and grapefruit), some pine bitterness at the finish.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Nice creamy feel that drinks very smooth.

O- Nice balance beer. Can see a lot of even non-craft drinkers liking this, or I guess a very approachable beer.

A stand-out among the American Wheat beers. Really strong hop presence, a little pine and a little resin on the nose. Very crisp feel, bubbly & definitely a little bitter but goes down pretty easy. It's a little strong to be a perfect summer sipper, but it is an excellent.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours gold, light to dark, hazier towards the top. Thick 1/3 inch white foam. Beer like nose, sharp. Grassy. Clean tasting open which hints at a small wall of bitter. Citrus swirled in. Crisp finish, but later on the bitter takes a firmer hold and lets you know it is there. Has a little Euro lager taste to it.

Honestly - what is all the fuss about?
