Good looking hazy yellow-orange color. Tight bubbles in a decent head that recedes pretty quickly.
Pleasant but bland smell, not much wheat at all. A little lemon.
Taste is all lemon, barely tastes like a wheat beer other than that it's a pretty neutral platform for the lemon.
Surprisingly fizzy. Carbonation and lemon zing combine to leave a nice tingle behind. Very little body.
If you like lemon seltzer and beer, you'll love this. Very drinkable.
Would drink again.
Note: The name doesn't seem to fit. Sure, it's a wheat beer, but there really should be more emphasis on the lemon. Maybe calling it wheat lemonade would hamper sales, though.
