A finger of head on a dark straw colored body.
Aroma of honey and grain, light and airy.
Flavor of lemons, apples and honey. Nice and balanced.
Fizzy texture but carbonation remains at a reasonable level. Light to medium body.
An above average ale..

Picked up a bottle from Fry's Foods on 10/2/12 for $7.99. Bottled on 7/12/12.

Beer comes out in a perfect pour, nice 2 finger white head, with little lacing left behind.

Nose is typical for a wheat, not much there. Some hints of lemongrass.

Taste has hints of lemongrass with a nice even hop balance that makes for easy drinking.

Mouthfeel is light to medium , refreshing.

Overall this is a nice wheat beer that is very refreshing.

Straw yellow with a fluffy white head that sits atop the beer. Some haze from the yeast in the bottom of the beer.

Aroma is of wheat and clove mostly. There is a little frutiness but it is mostly in the background.

The taste is mostly of bread and wheat. Very typical wheat beer flavors. Nice finish that is balanced towards sweetness over bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full and body is medium.

Overall this is a typical wheat beer. It is technically flawless but it does not jump out as anything amazing. That being said the beer is very refreshing and rather enjoyable.
