Pours hazy straw color with a slight orange tint and a tight white head. Not getting a whole lot of smell from this one, but what I do get is grainy sweetness with only the slightest hint of tart/funky yeast. Taste is heavy on wheat and grain notes. The malt profile is cereal-like, and there are some good citrus notes in the background. There's a tingling tartness on the front and bottom of the tongue. Very smooth. It's one of the easiest-drinking beers I've ever had. Sam Adams did a pretty spot-on job with this one. I'd maybe like a little bit more of the yeast in the flavor, but that's just personal preference. All in all, a solid offering.
