3.08/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle into flute.

A: Slightly opaque straw. LIttle head but quite decent lacing.

S: Citrus and coriander.

T: Pretty bitter hops, wheat malt and some spritzy dry lemonade.

M: Nice doughy mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation.

Overall this is a fresh and interesting American wheat but I really don't like this much hop bitterness in my wheat beers.
