I don't understand some of the tepid reviews of this beer, seems people are forgeting to review within the style and are instead reviewing against big beers. That being said, here goes.
A: Pours a hazy orange with a solid finger of head. Great lacing, best I've seen in a wheat.
S: Smells yeasty and citrusy. This is what blue moon wants to be when it grows up.
T: Taste is just like the aroma. Crisp, with great amounts of citrus and some nice flavors from the yeast. Incredibly refreshing, just what you look for in the style.
M: Much thicker body than you'd expect. Carbonation level is relatively low, all leads to a nice smooth feel.
D: Very sessionable, could drink this all night.
Overall a great beer from a great brewery. Luckily it's available year round here in Florida!

$ 3.50/16 oz draft at Unos’ at Birch Run
Aroma of malt
Head chopped by bartender – what remains is small (1.5 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing OK – small rings with small bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor begins bitter followed by a short generic citrus burst; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends quickly, no aftertaste.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation
This is classified as a pale wheat ale on BA. What I had was unlike any wheat beer I’ve ever had. I last had it in 2006 and I guess I’ll wait another eight years before I try it again.

Bottle poured into Sam Adams glass
White foam cap settles into a solid white foam layer with good lacings. Hazy golden yellow.
Aroma of straw, grass, lemon.
Malt , Yeast, then lemon on the front of the tongue. Crisp aftertaste.
Smooth, gentle carbonation. Light to light medium mouthfeel.
Nice, summer time brew
