look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours a cloudy, golden orange with a one finger fresh white head. The head fades quickly and the lacing is minimal. Smells of wheat and citrus, but very little, if any hop aroma. Tastes of wheat up front, w/ a dry cereal component. Finishes crisp with light citrus. Mouthfeel is a bit too highly carbonated for my liking.

Overall, a refreshing summer beer that I would have again but would not necessarily seek out.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Beer is cloudy orange-golden in colour, with a small to medium sized white head that fades quickly.

Smell contains wheat and dry cereal. I don't get a lot of hops from the nose.

Taste contains wheat upfront, with a decent hop component, but not as flavourful as I would have expected. Some light fruit. Dry cereal.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Heavy for a wheat.

Overall, disappointing. Not bad but not something I would go back to.

Serving type: on-tap
