A-Hazy golden, significant bottle yeast with a thick two-finger white head

S-Little scent, but some cut grass and bready wheat, faint citrus

T-Lightly nutty wheat with more faint citrus and hop bitterness

M-Fairly strong carbonation which really fills the mouth, otherwise light body and taste

O- One of my favorite summer beers, perfect for a hot afternoon outside reading or out with friends for dinner.

Nice and fresh - exactly a month old. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters shaker pint.

Cloudy pale Stil de grain yellow liquid with a shock white collar and faint surface slick. Lees float around in suspension. Vague lacing and retention.

Heavy lemon zest aroma with hints of buttermilk, wheat, and jawbreakers.

Mellow wheat flavors incorporate a pleasing acidity and a smooth graininess. Faintly bready finish with a low hay-tinged bitterness throughout. Yeast adds a touch of complexity far in the background. Decidedly American...not a hef.

Sticky yet largely light-bodied with a touch of creaminess and zippy carbonation.

A refreshing Summer beer, best served with light meals (or in this case, paired with fresh Mennonite cheese curds).
