Purchaser 7-11 Northern Blvd Douglaston, 6 pk 10.49....nice.

Beautiful. Great Packaging , no joke.

Promises to bring scents and colors of summer afternoon.
Delivered close , real close... got a nice not real hazy American Wheat.

grassy , lite hop , lie spice, some anise/agastace/licorice .
yeast had settled... but it is real new in their fridge, week old at best, got a nice clean pour...cake at bottom probably less headache

listed 5.8 % - didnt seemj boozy at all , very drinkable pending wheat beer headache.

real nice summer beer.

The pull downs keep me honest , weighted avg for the important stuff....

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pale yellow, slightly hazy. Decent head, forms a foamy ring.

Smell: Very wheaty, bread, grains

Taste: Roughly the same. The grains and bread hit very hard at the end.

Feel: Light bodied. Good carbonation. Refreshing on a hot day.

Overall: A good go-to beer for a hot summer day.

The beer comes in a vibrant light orange color.

The aroma has slight wheat, grain, a hint of orange peel, some herbal and grassy qualities.

The flavor follows with that bright grain flavor in the front, a slight grass in the middle, with a lack of any flavor other than metallic on the finish.

The beer drinks with a medium to light body with high drinkability, but a huge lack of flavor.
