look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into a chalice
Appearance: A nice gold with an amber tinge, topped by a thin yet fairly creamy head that disappears quite quickly. There is some nice lacing after every sip as well. Very clear for this style of ale, more reminiscent of a pale ale in looks.
Smell: Very hoppy upfront with an orange zest undertone. There is also a slight toasty and malty backdrop, a little bready as well.
Taste: Nice hops come into play immediately, then a nice bready and toasty flavor kicks in to balance out the bitterness. An orangey and citrusy flavor comes into play as well, rounding out the beer quite nicely. The wheat taste is spread evenly through the flavor, giving the overall taste a nice setting to play around with.
Mouthfeel: The carbonation is a big player in the way this beer feels, it gives a touch of crispness and freshness. This beer feels quite full and also has some silky characteristics.
Overall: What an excellent wheat ale, I can say with confidence that this is better than the more mainstream alternatives. It is a very complex and flavorful ale not shying away from hops, and that is something I personally like. Great beer, glad I bought it, you should to.

Appearance- Pours a two finger white head. Very carbonated. Color is bright yellow/gold like a adjunct lager.
Aroma- Not much here besides wheat and a little sweetness from the hops.
Taste-At the front some citrus hop and wheat are present. As it sits on the tongue some grain and bready malt shows up.
Mouthfeel- Clean and crisp. Light bodied
Overall- A solid beer that's perfect for the summer.
Serving type: can
