Beer pours a cloudy and hazy darker yellow. Some chunks of yeast can be seen suspended in the beer despite a careful pour. Head settles out to a thin collar.

Smells of wheat, citrus and a general yeastiness. Nothing sticks out too much.

The flavor begins with an initial smooth wheat flavor. No real fruitiness. Finishes with a fairly assertive hop bitterness. Bitterness is well short of a pale ale, but stronger than most American wheat beers.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side do medium bodied. Medium level of carbonation.

Straightforward American wheat ale with an enjoyable hop presence that leaves the yeasty wheat flavor intact. A good summer brew, but climbs up a bit in abv compared to many others in the same style. Not out of place though.

poured from can into snifter

A- pours a cloudy and hazy golden-orange color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a small layer floating on top, specs of lace

S- spicy character up front with some peppery notes, crisp wheat, a hint of berry sweetness, toasted malt

T- a subtle berry sweetness flavor follows the nose, followed by peppery wheat, lemon and some white wine qualities. Light herbal bitterness on a toasty finish

M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth and crisp finish

O- super drinkable and a great fit for summer. Not something I'd buy regularly but hit the mark on a hot day

Serving type: can
