Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. An undecipherable packaging date is stamped on the label. Received via the forward-thinking gift purchasing of my sister Tami from www.craftbeerclub.com beer of the month club.

A: Hazy gold with some more amberish tones near the head, topped with a 1-finger white, tightly bubbled head with decent retention and random spots and streamers of lacing.

S: This beer has some interesting and weird combinations of aromas. It comes out first with biscuit malt, almost graham cracker, followed by bubble gum and a strong lemon/pine character.

T: The flavor profile is also unique with a flash of medium caramel-biscuit maltiness that fades into a light lemon-lime finish. The yeast esters in the nose are not as noticeable in the flavor. There is no alcohol character. Low bitterness. The lemon-lime character hangs in and is the signature note of the finish and aftertaste.

M: I enjoy the more lush mouthfeel of wheat beers, and Air, despite its unfortunate name, does sport some of the light-medium body with low carbonation to help with the more coating mouthfeel.

O: Nothing wrong with this beer (except the name) but the lemon-lime citrus finish does keep creeping through the beer and is a bit much by the time you're through.

Lucid Air is yellow/gold in color with a well- filtered body. The nose on this beer is one of wheat malt and faint citrus, but it isn’t too bad. The head of foam is white and fluffy, leaving almost no lacing as you drink.

Tasting this beer reveals flavors of wheat malt, lemon, lime, and some biscuit notes. There is a hint of spice and almost no bitterness to speak of. The beer is crisp and clean, a little thinner in body, and quite refreshing.

This beer tastes about the way you would expect an American Pale Wheat Ale to taste, with a clean profile and just a few flavors present. Its thinner than average body and lower alcohol level make it seem like an American light beer in some ways, but it certainly has more to offer than your standard light, adjunct- laden lager. I appreciated it more once I tried a second bottle and while it may be a little lighter bodied than I prefer, it still seems like a good beer for its style.

I think this is pretty good stuff - a bit thin, but decent flavor and aroma. Looks good too (in fact, its best asset). Well rounded lighter beer. I could see this as a nice session brew. Wonder how it is on draft. And curious now about the breweries' other beers.

Clear gold with a less than one finger white head, which fades fairly quickly, leaving spotty lacing. The aroma has wheat, grain, and a bit of a musty smell.

Tastes pretty much like it smells with wheat, grain, lemon, and biscuit malt. I have never been a fan of lemon paired with biscuit malt. To me it is bland and boring.

Light bodied with above average carbonation. Nothing to get excited about. A bland beer without much flavor, and not worth seeking out again.
