12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a weizen glass

A - It has a golden color with a slight haze. It is capped with an inch of off-white head.

S - I get a lemon grass smell.

T - The taste is a bland lemon grass.

M - Moderate to thin.

O - I do not think I would purchase this again unless it was dirt cheap. It is very boring.

Poured chilled from a bottle into a standard pint.

A=Medium yellow with a tint of green and slightly murky; bright white head that stayed for nearly a minute.

S=Honey, with a hint of lemon

T=Much more sour than I anticipated...I didn't notice it initially, but a lemon flavoring appeared about halfway through. A slight creaminess also present.

M=Mild carbonation, and medium-to-low body...a bit watery vs. others and somewhat slippery.

O=Milder than other wheats...a good gateway or beer for parties to introduce newbies to the style. Probably won't buy it.

Poured from a bottle to pint glass.

Pours hazy yellow, quite cloudy. No foam. Strong wheat nose. Slight citrus too. Taste is a light citrus lemon/orange. Very little bite. Kind of a flat taste. Like white bread. Barely can tell it is a beer. Very mild.

Liked the label, not impressed otherwise. Enh.
