L - light haze, requires vigorous pour to get any head which lasts not at all
S - v. slight to no aroma
T - on the bland side of Witbier but refreshing and not overspiced
F - light and dry
O- more like Blue Moon than Hoegaarden or Allagash. Would not purchase again but might be OK if you like light lagers, are in the heat or mowing the lawn.

Overall: Easy to drink and enjoyable. This has always been a solid craft gateway beer in California and still is. [3.5]
Look: A beatiful, perfectly transparent golden color. Fluffy white head with excellent retention, and good lacing to boot. [3.75]
Smell: Yeasty byproducts (phenols mostly), wheaty. [3.25]
Taste: Sweet and bready. Some citrus zest, but a little bland. [3.5]
Feel: Crisp, and thin. Easy to drink, but could use a little more carbonation [4.25]
