Texas

3.4/5  rDev -10.3%

A: cloudy greenish-yellow, 2 finger head that dissipates quickly

S: strong lemon, metallic, can tell its a wheat beer, but not overwhelming

T: great crisp taste, lemon, bannana, grassy, taste like it smells - would taste good with an orange slice

M: decent balance, finishes dry, high carbonation (though i could use more), light, sessionable, would be a good summer beer

O: decent, but nothing to seek out, for the style I'd much prefer Ayinger's wheat beers

2.58/5  rDev -31.9%

12oz bottle poured into a Kasteel chalice glass

Appearance- The color is a hazy straw yellow with very little white head that dissipates almost completely.

Smell- A distinct European malt with a lemon hop also shining through.

Taste- Lots of grassy malt flavor with a quick appearance by some citrus hop.

Mouthfeel- Definitly on the watery side.

Overall- This ia a beer that definitly needs the help of some citrus fruit.
