look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Stuck on the couch here with a busted leg.
Pours a medium murky hay-orange tone color. Head is medium-thick, lightly chunky. Decent amount of carbonation streams throughout the brew. Pretty decent appearance.
Smells of all the great Hefe' s is not here. This is for sure an American wheat.Light straw, watery, orange,some grassiness , but really lacking in real depth or complexity. Finishes with a bit of straw, touch of hops, that's about it.
Flavor is also very light, a bit of creaminess from the wheat is appreciated. Upfront lightly citrus, but finishes with a toasted grain flavor I normally find in German Zwickel beer. The toasted character is not prominent in the nose but really adds a nutty complexity not anticipated in the flavor.None of the banana/clove/cream/ of a real Hefe, but the light floral nutty character is very similar to a good musty Keller bier, so It's really growing on me.
Mouth feel is fairly light, carbonation could use a slight boost. At times feeling a bit flat on the palate.
Overall decent, flavor is actually much better than the aromatics.

Draft to plastic cup

@Keystone Lanes, Norwalk, CA

App- This was very much more a wheat beer vs Hefe in appearance. It was cloudy and a bit of fresh squeezed orange juice color with a good one finger pure white head

Smell- There wasn't much here. You did get a floral wheat base with some citus and some yeast. Pretty basic but got the job done to at least smell something.

Taste- This was pretty non-offensive. Had some basic wheat notes with some additional grain notes. The citrus was more vibrant on this one. I still wouldnt go so far to label this a Hefe.

Mouth- Light bodied and a punch light/medium carbonation level. Good residual citrus/wheat.

Drink- This was for a work party and this was the best available. I couldnt not partake(I could, but didnt want too). This was just something to drink other than water. Not that bad overall. Better than I remember.
