Pours a clean straw color with a small head, decent lasting thin cap on top though with no pacing on the glass.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with a mild floral hop presence, not picking up much ginger on the nose.

Taste starts out with the malt backing and a light aspect of ginger, the ginger adds a clean fresh crispness to it, hops have a decent presence in the aftertaste, reminds me more of a Pils than a wheat ale though.

Very well balanced. The ginger flavour is clear, but it doesn't overpower the hops, and it allows the very light citrusy notes of the wheat beer to shine. I had a bottle as they were out at the tasting bar when we stopped by. It's worth a try, even if you aren't typically into wheat beers, as it's a well executed variant.
