3.53/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep golden with a nice big layer of foam. It dissipates slowly, leaving a moderate amount of lacing. A restrained aroma, with tangy, citrusy notes up front, but less of a malt presence than I had hoped for. Tart, citrusy notes up front again in the taste, but not much maltiness to be found. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but there is a nice, lively level of carbonation. Overall, this seems to be a decent choice for nice, hot summer days, but I think there are better brews of this style to be found out there.

3.3/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Golden yellow color. Slight head on the pour which dissipated quickly and wasn't present while drinking. Active carbonation is extremely low.

Smell: Biscuity malt hits first. Crisp, sharp wheat opens up on the body. Semi sweet wheat has a pleasant creamy flavor. Mossy hops shine underneath with a touch of oak.

Taste: A touch of hops on the front. Crisp wheat composes the body of this brew. A touch of grainy malts linger on the back end. Finish is a medium bodied dryness.

Mouthfeel: Fairly clean, some airy wheat. Carbonation is on the lower end, a touch off base.

Overall: A fair summer beer. Nothing overly complex or interesting but still comes off as a decent beer.
