3.13/5 rDev -13.1%
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a one finger of head of pure white foam. The fizzy head fades very rapidly leaving a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a wheat bread smell mixed with some aromas of a citrus nature. The citrus is mainly of a grapefruit and lemon smells but contains some light orange smells as well. Along with these is the faintest bit of a grassy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slight wheat flavor with the wheat gaining strength as the taste advances on. Upfront the taste also has a light graininess to it, with very minimal sweetness. Moving on from the start however, the graininess fades out a bit and a very light orange sweetness that was detected in the nose comes to the tongue. Along with the orange citrus, other citrus flavors of a light lemon taste comes to the tongue as well. With some hay-like and grassy flavors that develop late in the taste, one is left with a very lightly citrus sweetened and moderately wheat and grassy flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the style it is rather decent as the lighter body and higher carbonation make for a more refreshing brew all while not over-accentuating the grassy or hay flavors which would likely pull away from the drinkability.
Overall – Nothing too outstanding, but refreshing and easy drinking none the less. A sort of average wheat ale overall.

4.7/5 rDev +30.6%
appearance. A yellow pilsner color with a white half finger heard that starts to quickly disappear.
smell- a lemon/ wheat like smell. It kind of smells like an IPA which scares me before I taste it because I'm not an IPA fan. the smell kind of grows on you though. it is kind of refreshing.
taste- wow this surprised me. I didn't really know what to expect but this is great. It starts off with no flavor but then as it finishes it finishes an awesome lemon flavor. It is super light and a great session beer taste. This would be a spectacular summer beer. it's just got that summer vibe to it. The more sips I take the better it tastes.
mouth feel.- the mouth feel is great. smooth with the right amount of carbonation.
I normally do not try wheat beers and I was not going to buy this but God am I glad i did. This is a really terrific beer. I honestly think this beer is underrated on this site. This is defiantly one of my new favorite beers and I will definitely buy again and recommend to everyone.
