Poured from 12oz bottle. Thanks to betsona for this one!
A- Pours a hazy pale straw color. One and a half finger white head shows good retention. Nice ring and streaky lacing on the glass with each sip.
S- Wheat makes up the underbody to the aroma in this beer. The front of the beer though has the added help of orange and lemon to help balance out all the wheat aroma. Back of the beer has an interesting yeast aroma which I quite enjoy along with light alcohol.
T- With the first sip of the beer I get a nice apricot and orange blend that dominates over the wheat in the front. There is a light lemon hint but it only really shows toward the ending of the front. Middle of the beer shows off the wheat which kind of blands out the beer but balances it at the same time. Ending of the beer show the wheat in the distance with a light cracker like taste to it. Citrus and hints of ginger comes out as well. Lemon comes up on the final part of the beer with hints of dry alcohol as well.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Light wheat, orange, and lemon are left on the palate. Aftertaste is light dry alcohol, wheat undertones, and hints of lemongrass, ginger, and orange. Flavors I felt were well balanced for the style with nothing being over the top. No off flavors at all when drinking this one. Medium light alcohol drying on the palate with this beer.
O- I thought this beer was wonderful. I don't think Andrew cared for it that much but I thought it was a well made summertime sipper. Nice job Sweetwater!

what a great wheat beer. had this at several bars and i have to say that absoutely love this beer. the pour is nice and shows a clean light brown color kind of honey brown, the head is about 11/2 fingers thick, the smell is ofcourse wheat but also honey, nuts, and a little barley/rye, the taste is great with a nice aftertaste that isnt too sweet nor too bitter. i buy this beer every time i see it on tap.
Serving type: on-tap
