Pours a cloudy murky light orange brown brew.

Scent is a solid wheat and wheat husk scent. Slight lemon scent in there and a mild floral hop.

Taste is mildly sweet and very bready in flavor. Very lightly hopped, but is in proportion to the mild flavor of this brew.

Mouthfeel is full, as I would expect from a wheat beer this cloudy.

Very mild drinkable brew, a rich American wheat beer that emphasizes the grain wheat. Very rich for a wheat brew, quite close to drinking a glass of bread, very filling brew.

On draught at CBC and served with a lemon. I am pretty sure this is a seasonal so it must not be a seasonal given the fact that I tried it in November. Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Very thin lacing. Light-bodied and effervescent with a hoppy and wheaty flavor. The finish the lightly hopped with a hint of fruitiness. This is not as wheaty as a lot of Wheat beers, and is light and easy to drink.

Served as a sample at the Columbus Brewing Company. The color was golden, with some white head. The smell was of lemon. The taste was mostly lemony, which balanced quite nicely with the dry wheat. Moutfheel was fairly well carbed. As for drinkability, an excellent session beer.

I didn't even realize that this was a seasonal, when I first had it. Not a bad little offering at all, and a nice change of pace from the cookie cutter hefes.

A thoroughly refreshing beer that looked good as well. This beer came with a decent white head capping a cloudy yellow body. There was a very light nose that seemed consistent with the beer's flavor nature. Mostly a malt sense with some light fruitiness. The taste gives mostly a sense of lightness, not in the body, but rather that the flavors are delicate and do not smother the palate. Clean, crisp body with no astringency. Delightful beer that would be great at a summer gathering such as a picnic.
