drinking on 5/4 and brewed on 3/29 so its a about 5 weeks old. Picked up as a single from Total Wine in Reston, VA.
Appearance is yellow and somewhat less cloudy than many wheats. Minimal fizzy head. Some hoppiness on the nose but not much else.
Taste - This is a very nice easy and smooth beer with some floral and citrus hop flavor with little aftertaste and very smooth finish.
One of the better session ales I've had. As its refreshing yet full of flavor. Would definitely look to buy again.

Pours out to a patchy white head that lasts, a few narrow lace garters down the glass and cloudy, yeasty light golden color. Aroma is spicy, minty, floral hops and a bit of sharp wheat bite. Flavor really captures the signature characteristics of two styles (hoppy pale ales and American wheat beers) with a rush of hop flavor followed with a bready, grainy, slightly citrus finish. Mouthfeel is excellent. Overall a good call. If you want a "normal" wheat beer, grab a Boulevard Wheat, but for what it is, it is very good.
Basically they took a smooth and luscious wheat beer and dry-hopped the hell out of it to get the dominant aroma and taste of hops without extracting the bitterness. This is an ideal beer for those who love the smell and taste of hops but can do without the intense bitterness of an IPA or even an APA.
