look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Poured a 330ml bottle into a Samuel Adams glass

A- poured a deep, cloudy orangey-gold. Big foamy white head lasts for a long time but doesn't leave lacing on the glass
S- yeast, fruity esters, orange, grain
T- much less distinct than it's smell would lead you to believe. Tastes like grain, like the samples they hand out at breweries to show you what their grain tastes like. Very little else came through. No citrus, no yeast, no spice. Just...grain.
M- nice and full, with just a hint of carbonation
O- everything about this beer is great but the taste. The taste just doesn't fit in the with the rest of the beer's profile. Maybe I just got an off bottle (although nothing tastes off about it. Just under-developed) or I've got it too cold. But nothing about the aroma came through in the taste and that's kinda weird.

Bottle poured into a Wiezen glass

Full pour created a thick off white cap which slowly settled down with light lacings on the glass. Faint carbonation with an opaque reddish copper golden hue.

Faint smell of a traditional wheat beer. I would have liked more aroma.

Light mouthful with a light flavoring. Would have liked more flavor but this would be a refreshing beer or two after cutting a summer lawn. Subtle wheat beer taste. No aftertaste.

Good beer for a hot summer afternoon. Would have liked a more dynamic, aggressive flavor and aroma .
