A- Lightly cloudy. Golden straw color. No real head to speak of, or lacing that stuck around for any length of time.

S- Buttered popcorn. Slight sweetness. Clean water (at least I detected it). No real fruitiness is detected in the nose.

T- Everything is light/mild. An artifical buttered popcorn flavor. Almost like the flavor you get from the popcorn Jelly Belly. Only when you swallow the beer do you get a light fruitness. The graininess is very light.

M- Goes down like water. Easy and smooth. Not bitter at all.

Overall, this was not what I'd ever expect from a wheat beer. It's not nasty at all, but the flavors are not pleasant for what is labeled as a "wheat" beer. Try this beer if you are looking for a different kind of wheat beer or anything that is plain mild in flavor and mouthfeel. To me, their are American, German, and Belgian wheat beers that are much, much better than this.
