This is just an overall average beer. It is watery with little carbonation. The appearance is yellow with the classic cloudy look. The head dissipates and leaves a little lacing on the glass. The smell is nothing to write home about. The taste is slightly fruity with a flat and dry aftertaste. It is not a true hefeweizen in my book. It is just an average beer, not good, not bad.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle to Ram 71 tumbler.

A: Slightly hazy gold color, with a thin filmy white head.

S: Yeast and wheat notes, bready grains and some malt sweetness, hints of citrus with lemon and orange peel notes.

T: Follows the nose, wheat and malt hit first followed smooth and subdued citrus notes. Orange peel and faint spices. Minimal hop presence or bitterness.

MF: Crisp carbonation on a creamy but still light body, finishing with a slight but sharp dryness.

O: Not impressive but an easy drinker. Flavors and aromas are light, but it is refreshing.
