3.43/5  rDev +8.2%

Nice creamy head atop a clear, golden copper liquid. "Wheaty" aroma (tart) with hints of corriander. Malty, tart start, with a bitter, dry finish. Noticeable corriander, not-so-noticeable citrus spicing. Overall, a decent full flavored beer in a potentially boring category.

Nice translucent golden amber color as it evacuates the bottle and takes up residence in my glass, awaiting its ultimate fate. Head is adequate in size, frothy in texture; the lace left behind by the decayed head is a nice clinging sheet that coats the glass. Malt preponderates the nose that is also lightly sweet, crisp and fresh, nice sniffable beer. The beer begins mildly sweet, the top skimpy in feel, the finish is modestly hopped, middling in its acidity and the aftertaste droughty and long lasting, quite a thirst quencher and worth a sample.

The thick and well retained white head tops a clear golden bubbly brew. There's no yeast or cloudiness in this one. The relative clarity indicates filtration of heavy fining. Typical American wheat aroma-- a bit tart and grainy. Barely perceptible coriander and citrus zest notes from the spices. Flavorwise, this wheat is right in the middle of the pack. Like its aroma, the flavor is tart and grainy from the wheat. Flavor contributions from malted barley are insignificant. Thin in body. Hop bitterness is understated, but would be out of place in this mundane American wheat. The finish is dry and bland. I'm assuming the point is to drink it and forget about it.

Golden yellow color, small white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, grainy and sweet. Mildly hopped wheat beer, mild malts. Slightly sweet with some flavor and taste behind it. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
