look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Straw to golden in color is nice but the head was rather small and receded quickly. Minimal lacing.

Smell: Very nice aroma. Great wheat smell and moderate hops. Very sweet and inviting.

Taste: Wheat flavor is nice and sweet. Would prefer a little more balance of bitterness to the sweetness. Not bad though.

Mouthfeel: Very nice amount of carbonation. Body is a little thick, sort of syrup-like.

Overall: Not a bad beer but not worth buying again.

Serving type: bottle
