[Best served in a Shaker glass]
The pour was a hazy medium orange with a slight yellow hue and a large (2-3 finger) white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing and had a little bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma had a mild funky odor, along with hay malts, grassy hops, and a musty yeast with a just a light hint of citrus (lemon and orange).
The taste was a tiny bit sweet and a tad acidic with a mild wheat feel at first and then progressed into a more pronounced yeast flavor that was very mildly bitter and had a note of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with taste of wheat lasting beyond any of the other flavors.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall not a bad beer, but not a good one either. So much for AB Inbev trying to break into the Craft Beer market…
