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.
