Pours a pale yellow color with significant haziness, and strings of carbonation bubbles rising to the top. Bright white head - not very thick and disappears almost immediately. To be honest, this thing looks a lot like a light American Adjunct, but more haze. Strong wheat aroma with a helping of citrusy lime. Decent nose. Taste is very lackluster - the wheat is there...and a slight hint of hops with cirtus/lime. All in all though, the taste is weak. My chick had a sip of it and said "It tastes like water!" My thoughts were along similar lines - wheaty water. Mouthfeel is thin with heavy carbonation. Can't help but think of Budweiser as I drink it.
In sum, disappointment. But I've started to expect that from Sweetwater. C'mon Sweetwater, what are you guys doing? You have it in you to make top notch brews - do you just not care?
I will say though that this is refreshing and easy to drink. But so is water, and that's a lot cheaper.

Don't know much about wheat brews but hey this beer is pretty good. It does have a hazy yellow color with an interesting smell. The taste is nice though you taste wheat you also taste a bit of hops. The only other wheat beer I have had is budlight golden wheat and I hated it. I don't know what it is supposed to taste like but it reminded me of the budweiser clamata or how every you spell it. The one with the tomato or whatever. I didn't like it at all. Oh well!! Like I say I don't know much about wheat brews but I must say that this beer is easy to drink and very refreshing!
