A: Really light, nigh-clear yellow color. Pretty good size head that dissipated almost immediately, leaving a bit of foam to float around for the duration of the pint. Attractive carbonation.

S: Fairly weak, but crisp, smell. Corn, grain, and a hint of alcohol. Floral hops peeking in there too, though they are hardly there.

T: Clean, crisp, and almost unbearably weak. Wheat, corn and rice are the main tastes, but some syrupy adjuncts shine through as well. The crisp fresh taste of the beer helps the flavor feel "clean", but also leaves the mouth with a brew so weak there is little to work with.

M: Light in the body, with lots of carbonation. Feels thin in the mouth but goes down surprisingly smoothly.

D: Lets face it, drinkability is where this beer really shines. The weak taste makes it an easy beer to drink on a hot day (especially if a berliner-weiss isnt available), a fairly refreshing brew when chilled, and a great beer for cooking and eating since it doesn't hit the tastebuds hard, if at all. As a macro American brew, it is an example of the style that sits above the others.
