Got this one free so I can't really complain. Bottle dated 2013, hmm.
Don't look a gift horse and all that I guess.

Pours into a can pint with an explosive level of foam, hazy orange body with champagne streams of carbonation. A ton of lacing due to the overcarbonation and supercharged head.

Aroma is yeasty, some sweet apple juice and dried pineapple esters.
Taste is pretty tart, it has a clean lacto pucker, though I highly doubt it's intentional. A bit of dusty wheat and apple in the middle, and a bone dry aftertaste. Light and crisp. Yes the beer is infected, but it's honestly not that bad. Frankly the bland label description is worse.

Serving was a traditional shaker pint glass 335ml
ABV...5%
APPERANCE- Average color for a wheat ale. Faintly clouded golden straw in color I would say a 6 srm which is kind of a darker tint than normal. Head retention was low with a lace of lacing on the sides of my glass. Next time I serve this ale I will put my mug in the freezer for a little while then serve this beer into it to maybe spark up the carbonation, I say this because the foam vanishes almost too fast leaving you with no pillow of foam to look at when drinking this ale.

AROMA- Aromas of wheat bread, water crackers(dull cracker) with a hint of sour dough and unmalted grain. Yeasty and Grainy aromas may sometimes be bad in beers but for this ale I like its subtle notes of yeast and grain.
TASTE- On the front, a slight touch of diacetyl(buttery popcorn). In the middle, Faintly tart hitting those tastebuds on the sides of your pallet, grainy and notes of biscuit malt. On the finish or back, is a low perceived bitterness with a crisp, dry and truly refreshing finish.

MOUTHFEEL- Low carbonation, low notes of diacetyl, a sharp grain and crisp mouth feel. A touch of bitternessis complemented by the wheat taste and carbonation that eventhough its not all there, its still enough to cut through the taste of a greasy meal.
OVERALL- Good beer for the end of the spring season and the hot summer days. You can definitely forgive yourself for drinking a mug of this after a long 5k run lol. Good flavor, good appearance and a crisp, dry and refreshing ale

FOOD VS BEER- With any wheat ale I would recommend go light on the dish like a chicken salad with a balsamic vinaigrette and some cranberries and carrots. Also if you tailgating i would recommend making a bratwurst and use sauerkraut as a topping.

Thanks guys don't forget to keep drinking and taking notes goodluck to all taking the cicerone exam i will be taking it this year!
