look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a slightly hazed straw gold. Very bright-white head. Not much in the way of lacing Head reduces to a thin cap that lasts throughout the experience.
S: Strong hit of citrus hops, very lemony. Plenty of grassy notes in there, clean. Definite sweet wheat aroma, fresh baked bread.
T: Interesting brew. First hit is the sweet pale wheat, not overly so, just nice and clean. Then the hops hit, lemon zest, and a floral presence. Just a nicely "clean" tasting beer. The hops and sweetness of the wheat compliment nicely.
M: Really nice, get a velvety smoothness which I didn't expect for this light to medium body. Plenty of zip with the carbonation.
O: Hugely refreshing, cleans the palate while providing plenty of flavor.

4.03/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Only slightly hazy orange-gold body, tufts of bubbles, a good head that leaves a thin coating on the surface, a few legs of sticky lace.
S: Mostly strikingly clean hops, most citrus fruits. Faint background of wheat. Really good, but too hop-centric for the named style.
T: Again, too hoppy for the style, but it's too good for me to knock it much. Clean, clean hops showcasing a variety of citruses with minimal bitterness playing off a slightly sweet wheat base. Finish could be longer.
M: Supremely crisp. Fluid. Lively. Refreshing. This is fantastic.
O: A simple concept wonderfully executed. Exactly matches my preferences for low bitterness, restrained hopping, and mild wheat sweetness. It's between a wheat and an IPA, I guess they can't appease both camps ('this IPA is weak!' 'this wheat has too much hops!'). All said and done, a great, easily repeatable beer.
