look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy lemon yellow, softly pastel with a finger of white foam that fell fast. Nose is golden wheat with a bit of sweetness on it. Bright lemon zest rounds out the nose. Taste is a bit maltier than I expected. medium light rather than light. The mouthfeel is creamy and has plenty of carbonation to keep that in check. The wheat is crisp and dry. The middle of the beer is juicy with sweet lemon peel and tart lemon too. There is a bit of a sour taste lurking in the shadows that never really steps out but it gives the drink a slight pucker. The middle of the beer is juicy with fruit. Refreshing and crisp with a drying finish.

3.69/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This is a pale gold colored beer with a very hazy body, and a slight head of airy foam. Aroma consists of little more than faint wheat malt. Nice hoppiness, with high bitterness and a grassy, citrusy hop flavor. The yeast strain gives a well-rounded fruitiness. Otherwise, nothing much else here. It is well-carbonated and refreshing.

Nothing too special, but a pretty drinkable beer. It reminds me of the early days of micros when everyone made a generic American wheat.
