An excellently balanced summer wheat beer.

A: light gold, cloudy.

S: Weak but pleasant

T: A little bit sharp, but good. Not to much hops.

M: Smooth, but like I said a bit sharp.

D: Pretty good, but it's better in a bottle than a glass

Overall good. I'm not sure if this is a bad bottle, but I've been more impressed by this beer in the past before I tried to review it.

On draft at the Comet.
Pours a hazy light amber color. This is a nice sessionable summer wheat ale. Plenty of lemon zest and wheat in the flavor. Nothing too impressive in the nose, but very easy drinking and refreshing. This is an out-door beer made for patio drinking in the sun. This beer was made for the summertime outdoors. No wonder he moves so much of this stuff.

Great summer session. Got a slight head with carbonation and the floaties which I didn't notice when I drank a few of these last summer. Can smell the yeast along with the coriander and the tongue demonstrates some hops and slight malts balanced well. The mouthfeel is mdium. I really like this one. Tastes better than I rememebered. Probably grab a growler of this from my favorite beer and wine shop and enjoy once again. Cheers.
