Had great expectations about this one.
Pours a quite hazy straw coloerd glass. There is about two fingers of weak white head that quickly settles to only a lacing.
The aroma is grainy (wheat), but quite mild. Also slighty yeast and alcohol aroma.
The taste starts with sweet grains, the body is bitter and it has a slightly stale feel. There is a bitter finish.
It's a nice beer, but... not really what I expected.

The Appearance is the best part about this beer. Pours badass and the head stays with it the whole time of drinking. Smells like an average beer, except, for the very fruity smell but i would hardly care what the beer smells like if it tastes fantastic.
Taste is a little too hoppy and full of some citrus burst that i don't quite care for. I could drink a few but not something i would care to pay as much money as i did for a 16 oz bottle.

Appearance: Dry and pillowy like the tops of clouds, yellowish wheat color, cloudy which is expected for an unfiltered wheat beer.

Smell: Sweet citrus smell with sour mash mixed in behind, not a rich smell, rather simple without any complexity.

Taste: It tastes more like a Belgium tripel. It tastes weak and one dimensional; there is no body or depth to this beer. It tastes like a vitamin enriched Coor’s Light

Mouthfeel: Little oily coating, but overall not much of an impact one way or another.

Overall: I can see on a hot, muggy, summer day it could be refreshing but it’s the same as putting a lemon slice in a glass water, very little impact overall. Don’t see what all the hype is, personally we could not even finish the bottle, admittedly it was my first example of the style and if this representative of the style, I’m not a fan. Maybe it would be good on a hot summer day, but it’s not summer, not hot and not even day, it’s Saturday night and I wanted something with punch, so I drain poured it.
