Exceptionally flavorful and well balanced with a medium hop bitterness and Pils malt softness dominating. The finish is off dry. An overall crisp and refreshing beer and a great example of the style.

Pours a clear, straw color with a small white foam head that dissipates quickly. Leaves a little bit of lacing. Not too much going on the aroma. Wheat with faint spices and orange and lemon zest. The taste is so incredibly wonderfully balanced-- something NG has mastered. Some of their beers may be a little more subtle, but man do they do it well. Some really pleasant wheat. A little bit of grassiness, and some nice orange and lemon notes. A small amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. Really easy to drink. Crisp and refreshing, perfect drink for the end of the summer. Well carbonated. Overall another excellent entry by New Glarus.
