I remember trying this one when it came out a few summers ago and enjoying it during a long hot day of gardening. Hopefully it's stood the test of time.
A - Pours a very hazy straw-gold with a one finger white head. Head dissipates quickly and there is minimal lacing.
S - Some wheat but mainly an artificial grape soda aspect to the aroma. Not very enticing so far.
T - Tart blackberry up front that rides out to a malty, slightly sweet wheat finish. Not as alarming as the nose led on.
M - Lightly bodied and a tad overcarbonated, but very crisp and refreshing.
D - Overall a pleasant, fruity wheat beer for the summer time, but nothing that really reminds me of a witbier. Not bad for what it is, though I probably wouldn't be buying it outside of the summer variety pack.
