Poured from bottle to a weizen glass. Cloudy with the color of a wheat field on a bright day. Massive frothy head that is retained for the whole session with some chunks of lace here and there. Looking closer, it is very cloudy with bits of suspended yeast. Some remained stuck to the bottom of the bottle.
The scent is not overly potent, but pleasant none-the-less. Hints of citrus with wheat malt. Some yeast, but not intense.
It tastes simple and feels smooth. Moderate weight on the mouth with wheat, citrus, maybe the tiniest hint of clove.
Overall, I did enjoy this Summer Ale, though I am not sure it is worthy of the hype and following that it seems to have. To each their own.
