4/5 rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by 1/21/13.
Appearance: light silvery-golden hue with a moderate haze and a strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy white foam. This has the appearance of a good witbier; I like it.
Smell: big blast of funky, earthy, citrusy hops. They smell fresh and work well in this light and refreshing context.
Taste: an interesting combination of citrusy, earthy hops with the creamy and smooth wheat flavor. Bitterness is quite low considering the hop content. I tend to be a fan of the hoppy, smooth wheat beer, and this example is pretty well executed.
Mouthfeel: light body with a strong carbonation and a smooth and creamy texture. I like it.
Overall: a very refreshing and drinkable beer. This could make a pretty great session beer; good hop flavor without being overwhelming. I would definitely have this again.

3.55/5 rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: straw yellow to a golden yellow color. huge 2-3 finger foamy white head that fades a little too quickly but leaves a nice strong lacing behind. completely cloudy and opaque.
Smell: very sweet wheaty smell, a touch of bubblegum, the smell is quite hoppy, lots of citrus, some earthiness and a little pine.
Taste: opens up with lots of initial sweetness, lots from wheat, some caramel malts and some bubblegum. Hops come in at the end but are completely overwhelmed by the sweet malts. some citrus, earth and pine again.
Mouthfeel: nice and light, not quite as refreshing as i'd like do to the overpowering sweetness
Overall: the hoppiness worked very well in the aroma, but falls off just a little too much in the taste. If that balance worked out this would be a very nice wheat beer.
