Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed golden orange color with a big creamy white head. The head has a nice level of retention, slowly fading to leave a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heavy of a grainy wheat bread and lemon aroma.
Taste – Overall the flavors don’t transition too much. The taste starts out with a more grainy wheat taste with a lighter citrus flavor. The tastes start out with a slightly drier flavor up front and takes on more sweetness more toward the middle. As the taste advances further the wheat gets less grainy (smoother) in nature with more lemon flavor coming to the tongue, souring the brew ever so slightly. In the end a smooth wheat and lemon flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is average with a carbonation level that is rather low for the style of the beer. The body was quite appropriate for supporting the wheat flavor, although more carbonation would have been more fitting for the lemon flavors of the brew.
Overall – An alright beer, but nothing to call home about. This is one of my lesser favorites that Sam Adams produces. Even so it is not a bad brew.
