A great American wheat. It's smooth and refreshing. It's not as spicy as a traditional hefe, but it's a smooth, tasty wheat. It's so smooth it can be dangerous because it goes down so easy...so beware...you could over-indulge. this is my favorite everyday hefe. A very nice brewery...Their Drop Top Amber is very smooth too. If you want a smooth balanced wheat, this is a perfect beer.... Not as spicy as a traditional Bavarian style hefe though.

A random procured on a trip to Minnesota.

A - Pours a hazy pale straw colour, finger of head with little retention or lacing.

S - Scent is mild, buttery caramel with hints of cotton candy with a metallic wheat and grassy finish.

T - Much like the nose with some sweet wheat and lemon grass, the buttery caramel comes through with a hint of orange citrus.

M - A tad thin and watery, smooth and a tad dry on the finish.

O - A tasty pale wheat ale, nothing mind blowing, but tasty nonetheless.
