It offers yeasty bread aromas and flavors and a hint of banana. There is nice depth from the wheat but not a lot of spice. Although it does not have an immense amount of flavor, it is very refreshing and drinkable.

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a hint of orange. it forms a fairly good sized white head that quickly reduces down, leaving a small amount of lacing on the glass and more on the top of the beer.

Smell is typical of the style, malty, with hints of wheat and yeast.

Starts out with hints of banana and clove, then there is a bit of citrus to it, a bit orange like. Seems to have a bit of a funky aftertaste that lingers a bit.

Feel is ok, a but bubbly due to high carbonation.

Basically an average at best wheat beer. Nothing about it really stands out as being outstanding, and that funky taste in it doesn't help. I got this as part of a make your own six pack, glad I got to try it, and more glad I don't have 5 more of the same to drink.

This is a good beer for when you are parched and thirsty. A little cream of wheat like flavor and a hint of sweetness throughout. Lower carbonation and ABV makes this a quick and easy drinker when a person needs to rehydrate.

To me this has to be the first beer I have or it just gets overwhelmed by whatever I drank prior to it. It also wears thin on my buds after two or three. But for two or three when thristy this is a good option and a solid version of an american wheat.
