2.95/5 rDev -13%
A: Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white head that fades pretty quickly.
S: Lots of wheat on the nose with some vanilla wafer and lemon rind present as well.
T: Very light and pretty refreshing. Lots of wheat and pale malt throughout with a bit of lemon and honey sweetness. The biggest problem for me was a lot of bready malt towards the finish that got stronger and more overpowering as the beer warmed.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint.
A: Pale, golden hue. Pretty heavy carbonation with plenty clinging to the sides of the glass. Pours about a half finger, bubbly, white head. Settles, and deteriorates quickly, leaving only a smattering of bubbly carbonation, and a ring around the rim. Slight lacing quickly retreats into the body of the brew.
S: Wheat, hay, paper, with hints of Italian spice and lemon citrus.
T: Pale malt and wheat flavor. Pungent and a little tart with a heavy fermented grain quality. Slight sweet with a blunt orange and acute lemon citrus qualities.
M: Really light, with a refreshing quality. Full-flavored, though. Pungent finish.
D: Light character but with a nicely balanced flavor.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Not much to look at but has a solid nose combo of grains, fruit, and spice. Flavor is full, fermented grains, with a little citrus, and spice. Overall, this is a good quaff.

12oz bottle into tulip snifter.
Pours a clear, bright yellow with a fizzy white head that dissipates fairly quickly.
Aroma is primarily grassy hops.
Same as the nose, primarily grassy hops with some light malt backing.
Medium-light body with active prickly carbonation.
If I didn't know what style this was I would have guessed it to be some sort of light lager. Not a bad beer, but bit of a let down for the style.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light orange amber with a thin white head that dissipates rapidly leaving light lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and citrus. Taste is light caramel malt, light citrus and understated wheat. Light and refreshing, but otherwise unremarkable.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.
A: Pours a hazy light orange hue with a thick, 4-finger, white, head that slowly dissipates, leaving a nice trial down the glass, and ending in a wispy lace.
S: Wheat aroma with hints of lemon and yeast in the background.
T: Crisp wheat and lemon flavor with a piney background
M: Thin body and medium carbonation.
O: Just a so so wheat beer – pretty forgettable.
