Well hazed apricot yellow with a foamy white head that leaves subtle lace. Retention is good.

Aroma is a bit milder than I expected from Highland. Almost standard APWA notes of tangy wheat, light citrus, subtle spice, and grassy/floral hops.

Flavor a bit more pronounced then the nose but on the same line. Wheat and citrus, light honey and spice, with a herbal floral note and grassy hop finish.

Body is nice and slick with good wheaty effervescence. Smooth and quaffable, body may be the best aspect. Definately worth trying but not as exciting as I hoped. I wasn't too impressed withg the Shining Rock either, but am very glad to see this great brewery trying new things. I will buy anything they brew!

Comes out of the bottle a clear solar yellow with a thick, fluffy white head that does not stick around too long. Strong aroma is wheaty, yeasty and rather fruity, the latter being mainly sweet citrus - orange with more than a hint of lemon. Flavor is typical of a decent wheat beer, being wheaty with an undertone of yeast and a citrus hint. Texture has average body and a fair amount of fizz. Nothing special, but still refreshing. Brings a ray of sunshine into a chilly winter day.
