look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from their 12oz bottle, from a 6-pak that my mother in law brought me from MI...
Appearance - Pours a finger of white eggshell head, body is a golden opaque lite orange, leaves some nice webbed lacing after the session.
Smell - wheat bread, faint citrus, lite minerals and light coriander.
Taste - full wheat flavor, bready malts, light citrus of orange and lemon, some light coriander spice, longer into the finish I get some meadowy hops and just a touch of grapefruit pith.
Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, silky smooth, but not quite creamy. Carb is heavier side of medium, but very smooth and foaming which gives a wonderful smoothness and excellent drinkability. Finish is clean and crisp and just slightly dry.
Overal - The perfect blend of a wheat beer and a pale ale, very refreshing, this beer tastes like summer, and pretty sessionable at 5.8%. Highly recommend for almost any meal, or for enjoying with friends on a warm evening.

3.75/5 rDev -1.6%

A -pours a cloudy straw color with bright whit one finger head, loose bubbles. Appears lively thoughout and left a little lacing.
S - very subdued aroma of balanced malt and hops. Little bit of citrusy pine hop but only faint, melds right into a nice fresh barley malt aroma. Little bit of a fruity yeast character towards the end.
T - very balanced taste to match the nose. There is ample Bittering hops but only slight flavor hop notes of grass and lemon, nice mellow malt character throughout. Ends bitter and dry. Fruity Esthery character in the nose did not come through in the taste.. The taste is similar to a pilsner but with a little more malt forward.
M - mouth feel is a little chewy from the wheat, ample carbonation though to set it off a little. Finishes nice and dry.
O - I was glad to get this on a trip to Virginia, wanted something not distributed to Maine but easy drinking and the wife might like. This was spot on, nice crisp pilsner esque flavor profile thats a little maltier with a meaty body from the wheat, departure from the bombardment of fruity wheat beers common in these parts in summer, not knocking my socks off by any means, but a solid brew nonetheless.
