look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a bit of lacing on the surface and a thin collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass that slowly faded away.
S: The smell has aromas of grainy malts along with some notes of earthy yeast and spicy hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of earthy yeast and grainy malts along with notes of floral and grassy hops. There is a light amount of bitterness, which particularly stands out in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit clean and crisp on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style. It would probably make for a good summer beer or a pairing with a meal.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Light gold, nice head.

S: A bit bitter, grainy scent

T: Good flavor for the style. A bit bitter, definitely get grainy notes up front. I get a hint of a caramel after taste, though I'm not sure what this might be from, possibly from the grain.

M: Good mouth feel, nicely carbonated. Cool and refreshing.

O: A decent ale for this style. I would drink more than one in a sitting. I highly recommend this to folks who are used to drinking nothing but MGD/BUD. This beer will not blow you away. I think a great positive for this beer is it being gluten free, this makes it a great option for those allergic to gluten.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Libbey craft pint glass.

A: Light orange/pale gold. Translucent. Small white head with ok retention and lacing.

S: Coarse grain, subtly fruity hop reminiscent of apricot.

T: Follows the smell, except the hop serves more of a bittering rather than sweetening role than in the nose. Soft wheat, a hint of sugary malt, wave of hop bitterness, ever-so-slight fruit notes from the hops and esters (unripened nectarine, tangy apricot), another breath of fresh grain and yeast in the finish.

M: Nice body for the style. Carbonation adds some creaminess to the palate.

O: A pretty good blonde ale. I think the hops could have been utilized a bit better in the flavor profile, which could have been a bit stronger in general, but still tasty and refreshing.

Didn't know quite what to expect from this beer, but being a fan of Two Brothers, I figured it was worth investigating. I have to say I was pretty disappointed. Pours a transparent gold color with a meager head that is soon gone. Smell is faint, but what's there is not all that appealing. Flavor leans toward the hoppy end of the spectrum with a wheat aftertaste (reminiscent of Bud Light Golden Wheat, to be honest). Overall, a pretty thin beer with little working for it in any regard. Two Brothers have far better brews than this.
