Light straw color, very clear, heavily carbonated. Two fingers of fizzy white head; little retention and no lacing. Nose is acidic, some citrus in there, but a little wheat, too. A bit of hops.
Lighter wheat presence in a very light-bodied beer. Mild lemon alongside the malt, light hop bitterness and finishes on a citrus note. Very light in body, higher carbonation than I expected, but it works. Decent balance overall in this brew.
Good as a summer quencher, but not really interesting enough to be sessionable.
