look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle.

bottle from IBUnit63, thanks!

Bubblegum hop aroma, fresh grapefruit, lemon, & orange..very nice.
Flavor is very clean but bold..sweet pale malts backed up by plenty of soft wheat. Heavy citrus & spice..quite a bit going on for a pale wheat, but somehow this remains remarkably approachable.
Wheat texture is good also, but the carbonation is a bit overdone..if that was toned down a bit, this would be downright excellent. Honestly, I haven't had an American wheat this good in a long time..very glad I got the chance to try this one from Southern Tier.
