Was weirded out at seeing some spring beers out in January, so I snagged a 12-pack of this.
Pretty basic yellow-y appearance with a quickly dissipating head.
A lightly pleasant smell. Pretty fruity and what you would expect from a wheat ale.
Mouthfeel is decent. Carbonation isn't too overbearing, but it's pretty evident.
Taste is okay. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. Basic wheat elements with some fruity notes, mostly lemon.
Pretty drinkable, but I think it's really caused by the lack of a bold flavor or something to that extent. Sessionable, but I usually go for bolder, richer drinks, so I'm probably not going to be quick on buying more.

Sort of a pale to medium gold color, this beer does shine brightly though it shows a potential thinness beyond simply being light in body. There's lots of bubbling carbonation rising from the bottom, and it's needed as a foamy head struggles to surface. It does, though, and holds its own better than I'd think. Some reasonably decent spotting is also managed.
The aroma is very light, offering pale malts with some light citrus zest and sweetness both of orange and lemon. There's a hint of rind in there, though I get more the impression of watered-down juice mixed into dusty malts. I've smelled worse in a Blonde; more than anything, it's simply weak.
In the flavor, the weakness comes out to more ill effect than the aroma. It ultimately ends up making this beer taste more like a lightly flavored seltzer water than anything. Dusty malts actually go a touch astringent, it's got some corn husk, and it just goes way too thin and lacking in flavor.
It feels like seltzer water, too, and the best I can say is that at least it's crisp. Even that tingle falls off in the end.
