3/5  rDev -12.5%

This poured a very clear and well carbonated golden yellow color. No discernible head. The aroma has light and sweet citrus grains along with a pleasant and pungent sour wheat quality. The taste is light and lemony and slightly tart. Very refreshing. A nice and light bodied ale. There’s really nothing bad to say about this beer – on the flipside, there’s really nothing that extraordinary going on here. Enjoyable and satisfying.

Pours a very hazy orangish body topped by a creamy white head that holds well and leaves some excellent lace. The aroma expresses a softly sweet malt with little yeast characteristic and no hops. The flavor is more bitter than the aroma suggests with a nice, crisp hoppiness. The malt is clean, with a light sweetness, and only a very minor amount of wheat flavor - undistinguishable to the standard taster. There is a gentle fruity note that's nice. The body is medium-light, with a high level of carbonation (maybe 2.6-2.8). The finish is dry with a lingering bitterness. A light, crisp beer that could just as well be brewed without the wheat. Not much character, but light and refreshing.

3.9/5  rDev +13.7%

Bright yellow-ish, light golden color with a low white head. Decent carbonation overall but leaves no lace. Spicy hop aroma (Saaz?) with an underlying grainy malt aroma. Nice grainy flavor with a stronger saaz-ish hop flavor for the style. Light bodied, crisp, and refreshing.

A mix between an American Wheat and an American/European Pilsner.

Label states "Saaz and Hallertauer hops" & 4.4% ABV

I don't like wheat beers, but this one was pretty good. It seems as though it was filtered. The beer is golden with little to no head. The nose has an apple and citrus character. The taste is apples, lemons, and tea with mellow hops. The mouthfeel is very refreshing and crisp. This is a nice summer beer with no yeasty stuff left in the bottom.
