Well for starters, it is very cloudy, like a wheat beer should be. The color is yellow, maybe a tiny bit of orange. It looks very thin though, it doesn't look like your going to be able to pick up the wheat, even though it's cloudy, it looks weak and thin. I like my wheat beers to have a nice heavy wheat presence. Poured a one finger head that has faded pretty quickly. Appearance is eh, ok. Well on the smell, I like the fact that the fruity smell isn't overpowering, that is good, but I hope it isn't too subdued on the flavor, a little fruit taste is good in a hefe. You can also pick up malts, a crisp malt smell. Not really any hops here tho, that's ok though for the style. Nope, taste is not that great. The first thing I notice is that generic beer taste, like a macro lager has. It is very thin on the mouth like I thought it would be, maybe a tiny bit bigger than I anticipated, but still very thin, not much wheat presence. You hardly pick up any fruit taste in this beer, kinda disappointing, too much is bad, but I like a little in these wheat beers. I mean there isn't anything too offensive about this beer, other than maybe that generic beer taste, but at the same time there is really NOTHING that good about it. Like I mentioned before it is very thin, and by thin I mean thin on the mouth, so mouthfeel is not good on this beer. Drinkability is ok I guess, not a heavy beer. Overall, super average, nothing impressive here at all.

Ticking this one for an Untappd badge... Surprised I have not reviewed it before... Pours an orange haze with a long lasting white head.
Nose is standard "wheat" with a little bit of something that I associate with lemon.
Flavor is the same... drinkable and light tasting, goes down pretty smoothly.
Probably the prototype for most American Wheats... but I like mine generally with a lot more hop character.
