I tried this recently in a pint glass that was poured fresh from a tap. For some reason it was significantly better than what I tried from bottles previously. I enjoyed this beer and would definitely recommend it.

Perfect. Nuff said. You can't find another beer at this level in this style. I have had a lot of different beers and none really get close to the quality of this beer. Makes sense why it is hard to find.

I love this beer. Picked it up expecting it to taste like most wheat beers, lacking any real sustenance. I could not have been more wrong. What a refreshing beer for me, but also for the industry that I think is lacking in experimental wheat brews. The Amarillo hops are very apparent and the after taste proves it.

One of my "regular " favorites but hard to come by unless you really look, or stop by 3 Floyds.
