Special delivery from a co-worker for St. Louis.
Pours to a hazy translucent yellow color with a nice head and good lacing. It smells amazing with hints of lemon and pine.
The taste is very smooth and has a nice malty flavor with some hints of the hefe but it leans more towards a wheat.
Overall this a decent offering.

A- A Goldernrod yellow and slightly hazy. Had a foamed white head.
S- Citrusly yeasts dominates the nose and a bit of wheat.
T- Light malty and yeasty mixed taste. There is a bit of sweetness and citrus.
M- A smooth even taste with a light carbonation.
D- A great summer beer for the fridge that doesn't take itself to seriously. This is alot better than many a wheat beer I have had in summer.

12 oz. bottle poured into an Ayinger tall Kirta-Halbe glass.
A - Pours a very pale, light yellow. Four+ finger head of white, loose foam sets up instantly during the pour - glad I used this glass. Held to a full-spectrum light, beer is almost a neon yellow with a touch of light green tinting. Hazy and moderately opaque, beer shows suspended stratifications of particulates throughout the glass. Head falls in on itself at a deliberate pace, leaving splotches of foam on the sides of the glass and a fluffy pillow on the surface.
S - Lemongrass, wheat, subtle flinty mineralness, just a touch of banana poking thru the background.
T - Light wheat flour and very subtle hints of mellowed lemon. A touch of yeastiness, with a bit of banana sugar, like the end of a banana popsicle, in the little finish there is. Not much taste at all to this beer. Quite neutral across the entire quaff.
M - Neither fizzy or creamy. Rather thin, almost watery. No real finish to speak of. Little body. Light structure, but integrated.
O - Perhaps in the dog days of summer, when the thermometer and humidity are both pushing 100, this, ice cold, would be refreshing. I'm not sure if the blandness of this bottle is due to it not being just bottled - I got this last fall - and/or still being in spring and mostly drinking malty beers, but there just isn't much going on with this beer. This is a summer session beer, and one most females would appreciate being given, as well as your Bud Light friends who think all craft beers are bitter hop bombs - this one will seriously mess with their expectations. I like unfiltered hefeweizens, but this one is too soft and undefined for my tastes. It's not a bad beer - it's just not much of a beer overall.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a weizen glass.
A: Hazy, pale golden color with one finger of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass. Small deposits of beige yeast sediment can be seen at the bottom of the glass.
S: Lemony and metallic, slightly oxidized, with a trace of baker's yeast.
T: Begins dry, with pasty wheat flour, brief clove that is weak, and very mild and refined herbaceous hop aromatics. Acidity is normal for the style, somewhat citric and complimentary to other aromatic qualities. Sweetness increases in the middle, while most other flavors become diminished nearly to the point of insignificance. More dusty wheat marks the transition to the finish, where mild orange citrus fruit but no bitterness worth mentioning is detected.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, briefly astringent on the palate at first then turning wet, with brisk carbonation.
D/O: Inoffensive and unremarkable, this wheat beer struggles unsuccessfully to live up to the hefeweizen categorization seen on the label. The highest praise available to it is the ability to scrub the palate fairly clean. Set it aside for the non-beer drinkers.
