Had this one in a blue moon weizen-style glass, I guess it was sort of as expected given the reviews here - not Sam Adams best work, but it certainly isn't bad.
Pours a golden wheat, a little bit brighter than a white ale, with a finger or so of head. Smell is like any beer, a little more metallic than I expected, and some subtle lemon and other citrus hints, but nothing really special.
Taste is much like the nose, but exceedingly light and easy going down. Light citrus, particularly lemon, and pretty basic. Mouthfeel is a little bit thin with slight carbonation - not a real positive for this style. Overall this is a good one for a summer day, but just not great.
