Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, lemony. Taste is tart, lemons, a bit of wheat, decent but not as refreshing/thirst quenching as is usual for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Draft at Marie's, served in a branded weizen glass.

Clear golden orange, spotty lace all around the edges. Broken skim across the surface.

Butterscotch aroma, hello diacetyl. Bleh.

Taste is similar but has a biscuity malt presence and soft wheat graininess.

Feel is borderline, watery but slightly smooth from the wheat. Wondering if it's just dirty lines at the bar accounting for the butter notes, though can't be sure. Overall a one and done. Wanted to give these guys another chance but they're not doing anyone proud.

Honestly this beer is hard to nail down.

It's got some european hops with a slight funk kick on the aftertaste. Fairly full mouthfeel for a wheat beer. It looks darker than you would expect for the style.

Large off-white head with minimal lacing.

Smell is kind of bland saisony.
