A - pale yellow, very light straw color. Minimal head that quickly dissipated. Good carbonation coming up. Like a bud light in color really.

S - mainly wheat and citrus. The citrus is refreshing and zesty. Smells very much like a hefeweizen.

T - kind of flat on the palate. Not much here. The aftertaste has a bit of the citrus. Really mainly flat and non-descript. Wheat is trying to come out but is hidden.

M - this is its standout to me. Very smooth and mellow on te palate. Right amount of carbonation. Aftertaste sits nicely, but very mellow.

O - my first by Cold Storage. Was not impressed. It is drinkable for the summer, however. But if its flavor you're after, not the one for you.

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a clear pale yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that was fully diminishing and had poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a mild grain malt and a soapy yeast with a hint of citrus (lemon).

The taste was very mild and had a light hint of citrus from the start with a mild funky yeast settling in towards the end. The flavor was short lived and very light after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall a very light Wheat beer, that I feel fell just a tad short. Although, the low ABV and easy drinkability make it a decent session brew...

12oz bottle

A- Pours a clear golden yellow color with an off-white head.

S- The aroma is sweet malt and very fruity (almost artificial like Fruit Loops). 

T- The taste like the aroma is faint wheat in the background with more of the artificial fruity flavors that were present in the aroma.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a lot of carbonation.

O- Overall, I just wasn't a huge fan of this beer. Did not taste very fresh or natural.
