Appearance is a darkish yellow with a fuzzy head that recedes fairly quickly. Not much cloudiness like some wheat beers, although that isn't unusual for American beers in that category. Smell is of wheat and some malts. Not too complex but decent. The taste up front is rather pleasant - wheat and spice combine for something light but not bland. It is the aftertaste that gets me. It is overwhelmingly sour, almost soapy. Maybe it was just a bad batch but it is hard for me to overcome the aftertaste. That brings the beer down considerably.
