A- Pours a medium level of hazy with a swirl around the bottle to get it out. Bright yellow in color like a wheat should be, with a 2 finger head that retains a minute or two and has decent lacing.
S- Light, grainy, and a little citrusy for most of the scent. At the back end of the sniff there is a hint of very mild, balancing hops bitterness.
T- Starts very light and grainy with a fairly strong citrus presence. Lemon is prominent in the fruit flavor, which takes over the middle half of the drink. Citrus flavor lingers until the end, when a very mild hops presence appears. The combination of citrus and hops gives a bit of a metallic flavor that lingers after the drink ends.
M- Highly carbonated and pretty light flavors make this one very drinkable, but the heavier wheat presence limits it a bit. Still, this is in line other wheat ales as far as weight.
Overall, nothing especially special here, just an everyday wheat with a little above average citrus flavor. Metallic flavor really brings the flavor back to average.

For an American Wheat it's very pleasant to drink. It was a little more hoppy than I was expecting for a wheat beer and it has a slight IPA like feel in the mouth. Very good taste and flavor but personally I could have used a little more. I'm familiar with very flavorful beers and I enjoy ones that have a bit more weight to them. This would be a good summer session beer.
Overall it's a good beer but there is nothing that really distinguishes it from other craft wheats that I've had; if you do find yourself at Triton I recommend the Rail Splitter IPA.

Triton just started bottling this a couple weeks ago.
This beer pours a light bodied honey gold in color with just a slight white lacing around the glass that quickly disappeared. It is very bright and does resemble honey or a honey tea quite a bit. The nose is pretty standard for a pale wheat. There is slight pale malt aromas, a touch of honey, with an ever so slight yeastiness. There isn't reall much to it. I definitely don't get any Amarillo and the yeast character is muted. It's ok. It drinks really light in body with aggressive carbonation. It has a slight bite to it. Overall this is a pretty average wheat. I would have preferred some hop character as well as traditional yeast characteristics. That said, I could see others really enjoying this during the summer. It would be very session able and great in warm weather.
