This is very clean for a wheat without the big esters found in many European interpretations. The nose is herbal and citrus with more hop action than yeast. It pours crystal clear pale gold and the thick fluffy head confirms the presence of wheat, along with the rich texture. Grainy malt on the palate carries hoppy spice into the finish. Medium carbonation and body. Easy to drink.

Bottle poured into a Big Sky Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours a light straw with a little white head.

S: Wheat sweetness, a little citrus hops, and a little grassy.

T: Light citrus hops, a little orange lime and grapefruit, very nice bready malt and wheat sweetness.

M: Lighter body, moderate carbonation.

O: Nice light wheat ale, but not overly complex or special. Would indeed be very nice while fishing.
