Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass.

A - Very clear gold, with a fizzy two-finger white head with next to zero retention. Mere specks for lacing. For a wheat beer, I did expect a thicker head.

S - Clean mild aroma of wheat and a little tangerine. Mild, but doesn't smell bad at all.

T - Taste matches the nose, with the wheat malt clearly leading the show here, lending a multi-grain bread flavor. Fruitiness becomes much more generic than in the nose, tasting reminiscent of orange scented wood polish. Hops don't really balance the wheat as well as they should, but they do add just a hint of spice. Hint of adjunct dextrins, but not overwhelmingly so. Overall flavor profile is clean and mild.

M - Things improve here, as the flavor profile would have you expect lots of water...instead you have a pretty full bodied beer for the style. Prickly carbonation. Finishes very "wet", with a mouth-coating finish.

O - I'm not exactly sure why the other reviews slam this beer THAT badly. It's a little bland and certainly nothing to write home about, but it's not really terrible either. Am I buying it again? No. But I wouldn't turn down a free one if someone offered.

Pours out a lighter and more clarity kind of liquid than would be expected using wheat. Might be less than 50% of the malt bill. Less than impressive head retention, it started out about 1" deep, but where it went, nobody knows. Put it at that mildly dark golden color.

Aroma had a little of the kafir lime thought playing in my head, they used the same color label, mind playin' tricks on me. Either way, citrus is welcome, even if not necessarily 'good'.

Taste, meh. Weird bitterness, lack of wheat flavor or texture. Jeez, could they overdo the carbonation a little harder on this one? Explosive (insert dre drums). MIld caramel mouthfeel if you can get past the club soda tendencies in this one. Still has that tart lime thing going along with a bit of mineral water bitterness.

They really went after a blonde ale, dropped a smidge of wheat, dropped a ton of carbonation, maybe a lime wedge. That's this beer.

I respectfully dissent.
