2.13/5 rDev -32.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2
Poured form a bottle with a best by September date.
I have to say I love many SA products, I often get the boston lager, the noble pils and the cream stout, but I hated this one, I haven't been this disappointed in one of their products since I had the cranberry lambic.
This pours a golden straw like color, slightly hazy (but not much for a wheat), white foamy head. The smell isn't good, I smell the lemon rinds but it almost smells like a lemon soap, not very appetizing. Mouth feel is okay, pretty light but good for a summer beer. The taste though is terrible, I don't get any wheat, in fact all I can taste is the lemon, its not a good tart lemon taste but instead its some bitter bizarre soapy aftertaste. I actually can't taste anything but the aftertaste. I'm so glad I tried one of these my friend had because I don't know if I could finish a 6 pack.
Overall, I disliked this and won't get it again. At least SA tried something new, its just one something I liked at all.
