look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden cot with white head. Lacing rings the glass with each sip.

The nose is tight. Very faint wheat malt.

Starts with a whisper of wheat and malt with just the faintest hops to balance it out. This is american lager meats wheat beer.

Mouthfeel is appropriately medium. The finish is clean with a bit of grahm cracker flavor lingering

Overall, a good lawn mower beer here. Not sure it's categorically an American pale wheat but cream ale perhaps. This has mass appeal for casual beer drinkers, I'm sure and it sure quenched my thirst after a long day of work.

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into minimal lacing. The aroma has a faint tangy wheaty quality, but it is quite hard to detect. Thr taste is similar to the aroma. Mostly open space. The mouthfeel is thin with moderate carbonation, and a watery texture. Overall, this is a bad example of the wheat beer style, and a bland beer in general. I will not drink this again.

A- straight up golden american lager color. crystal clear. light active carbonation. 1 finger of white head that fades rather quickly.

S- light european pilsner. That same kind of stella skunk. Herbal, floral, really nice. Potent too. I could smell it as soon as I opened the bottle. The aroma filled the room.

T- Mildly hoppy, in a floral way. The yeast comes through at the end. Great flavor profile for quaffing.

M- it's pretty soft. absolutely dry. the carbonation dances but doesn't sting the tongue. Very easy going.

O- Session anyone? This is a full flavored, easy drinking pale wheat that invites you in for more and more. I'd buy a 12 pack anytime. As far as the style goes, it's a version. It's filtered, it's hoppy, it's medium bodied, so not quite what I was expecting, but nevertheless, awesome beer.

3.75/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Ever so slightly hazy pale yellow with some visible effervescence slowly ascending towards a thin off-white head.

Aroma: Sweet wheat and an odd, but not entirely unpleasant, smell I can't quite place.

Taste: Crisp and pleasant flavor with definite notes of the wheat. A little sweet overall with a slight grassy hop profile. A meager 12 IBUs so barely any bitterness. The odd smell comes through in the aftertaste (corn startch?) and like in the aroma it is not really a bad thing, just different. Pretty robust for 4.2% ABV. Very nice balance.

Mouthfeel: Between thin and medium in body which is pretty thick for what I was expecting but a good thing. I gave it a very aggressive pour to calm down some of the carbonation and it resulted in a very smooth drinking experience and high drinkability.

Final Thoughts: A decent low alcohol offering from a local brewery. Would work well as in introductory craft beer. Would I drink it again? Probably not, but it would be good on a hot summer day.

12oz on-tap at the narrows

look is a fizzy light yellow, smell is grain and apple jolly rancher in the background. taste starts with a musty grain, with a hop finish that again reminded me of green apple. its slightly crispy, light but not watery. good stuff, but won't blow you away.

This is a special beer, hitting the niche of being under 5%, having a bucket-load of flavor and not being an import. We Americans rarely design these beers - so I just have to come in here and let y'all know it exists.

By accident or design this beer has a somewhat unique tart flavor, balanced to a mild bitterness and NOT over-carbonate (Lucid doesn't want to prick your tongue). It's not a juicy sour, or a musky sour, its more of a general tartness. This tartness also blends nicely with the smell.

This seems to me a rewarding ale. One that once you adjust you palate you have found uncommon goodness in beer. Most beers aren't this creative without becoming undrinkable, this weaves a path near the crevasse of uncertainty, making you think that you shouldn't like it but there's something intriguing to keep you taking other sips.

A winner of a beer from Lucid Brewing.

While waiting on a take-out order at Punch Pizza in Minneapolis, I noticed their "half-beer-while-you-wait" sign. Decided that was a good chance to try this local beer. Tasted 21 November 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours very pale yellow, totally clear. About 1 finger of white head. Nice lacing, good color, and a thick stream of bubbles rising up. Solid.

Smell is super faint and kind of grainy. About what I was expecting. A little bit of crisp hops, but that's pretty faint. Mostly it's grainy light malts.

Taste is similar, but strangely airy. Thin flavor. Like drinking light beer - an odd thing to get from a craft beer. Sometimes it tastes grainy, sometimes it tastes like nothing at all.

Very very light bodied. Pretty well carbonated, starts out prickly. Rather quick finish. Crisp and clean, but for a light refreshing beer I'd like it to be more crisp.

Kind of a dull beer, but not so bad. Airy, almost like I'm not drinking beer, except for the carbonation and the light malty flavor. I can see what they were aiming for, but it's not something I'm really excited about - an ale that tastes like a light lager. Now I know what it tastes like, and I won't feel compelled to drink it again.
