3.93/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Out of the bottle foams real nice and big but with control. Large cap of sudsy shampoo white, varied bubbles in size, but lots of retention and staying power. Body is crystal clear dark twenty four carat yellow, brassy, with rising carbonation not too fast but at a good clip. Real sexy looking drink.

Chewy wheat, and spicy phenol and hop. Not so crisp, more of a dense wheat malt sensation. Basic, simple, solid.

Palate hits with a muted lemon juice, then with a good malt mix backbone. Finish lingers with a good bakery white bread quality. Good crisp mouthfeel, and finish has a little banana estery quality to it, just ever so faint.

Pretty refreshing and easy drinking and decent tasting. I dig it.

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.
