look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Very light scent, a bit of nuttiness with some caramel or toffee hints. I get a bit of hop scent, a light grassy smell. I like it, although it's rather understated and tough to discern.
Toward the lighter end of carbonation for a wheat beer, even though this is a hybrid. Light on the palette, no real creaminess or body with this being a bit heavier than water.
Poured to slightly hazy mellow gold/straw with a minimal head in a hefeweizen glass although there is some lacing as I start to get into it a bit.
A bit of the bitterness of the hops in the finish, although this is meant to be easily quaffed. A bit of the toffeeish/caramel malt notes are there but this is a really smooth beer and easily drinkable.
See above, although a bit of a higher abv at 7% abv I believe you could have quite a few without the taste becoming overpowering before the alcohol does.
I do like this although I'm not sure the circumstances to buy it. Easily drinkable, although relatively lower end of flavor spectrum. Not really much of a wheat beer taste. With that said, it does go down easy and is a good flavor. More of a pilsner taste to me.
