A: Golden filtered with a few floating particles, no carbonation, a finger of foamed egg white head.

S: Lager, wet dog hair, offal, light citrus.

T: Lager like, some wet dog hair, offal, a little lager like crispness, light bitterness on the end. Almost non present banana.

M: Light body, highly carbonated.

O: A nice taste of history, marking how far American craft brewing has come. So much like an AA Lager, with a few tweaks that a novice wouldn’t pick up on, yet this was supposedly the first American wheat ale in the modern era. Got at Trader Joe’s Ashville.

This beer looks real good! Eye candy to the fullest -
Sweet golden color a lil hazy like deep water diving in hefe heaven

Aromas are a mix of wheat, lemon, grass and wheat! Lol yep lots of wheat going on here

Taste is malted wheat up front - hardly any hop bitterness but definately there -
After taste is sweet malts with no cloying hefe flavors - definately American style here

Mouthfeel is very refreshing and crisp with an extremely dry finish-

Overall this is a picture perfect summer brew keeping your focus on friendly conversations with others instead of having to explain flavors to non craft fans

I'm definitely a fan of this beer. It's not a heavy-duty beer, but is definitely yummy. Perhaps it's that I'm a fan of San Fran/California.. perhaps not. I do like the taste, as it is crisp and light without being bland. This is the second time I've purchased a single bottle of this lovely beer, and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a six-pack next time. ;)
