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.

16oz can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a fluffy white head, light lacing. Aroma is of citrus, lemon, citrus pine hops. Taste is citrus lemon, wheat and grains with some citrus pine hops bitterness. Palate is a medium crisp body, good carbonation. Finishes with citrus notes, wheat and grains followed by some good spiced dry hopped bitterness on the end for balance. Overall a quite good drinking sessional wheat ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
