A: The beer is nearly clear yellow in color and has a light to moderated amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of citrus hops—lemons seem to stand out in particular.
T: As in the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat along with notes of bready and grainy malts and lemons. Faint bits of bitterness are also perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than being light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and can be considered sessionable. It's not a bad choice for a beer during the summer months.

On tap:
Pours more translucent than cloudy, with a fair head than reduces to a film fairly quickly. Agitation brings carbonation back fleetingly. Nose is grass and pine hops a lot more so than any wheat beer expectations. The scents fade quickly, though and I had trouble finding more (and I think there was a little more, maybe a bit of peach). As the beer warms I get the slightest hint of wheat beer-little banana and lemon.

The taste starts crisp and a bit earthy, with a surprising carbonation burst given the look. Light cracker malt tastes have a nice grassy bitterness layered in top. The end brings a bit of bell pepper tastes. I also get something I'll describe as an unripe peach taste, but I am struggling to pick it out, and it is very subtle.

I think this is a straightforward beer. It was almost so simply enjoyable, I struggled to place flavors and the review sounds more complex than the beer was. That said, I surprisingly enjoyed it. It's one of those "je ne sais quoi" beers for me.

Thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of lemons, wheat. Taste is light and mild, a bit of wheat tang, a touch of lemons, very refreshing but a bit bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

This is not a bad beer, but it's kind of generic tasting, so I'm not sure I'll be tempted to buy it again. To me it was like a summer seasonal wheat with a bit of hop flavor. Like many easy drinking summery beers, it's easy drinking but not too memorable. The last couple of sips I had were when the beer had nearly reached room temperature. At that point the taste and feel was kind of watery, but there was a slightly grassy aftertaste, but grassy in a good way. I wish they could better integrate that flavor. Maybe less citrus would help a bit.
