look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Built for all-things-summer, the candied fruit notions of lemon, bread, and powdered sugar gives the ale a zesty and refreshing character with assured sweetness. It the beer built for picnics in the park or what?

Hazy gold in color, the ale carries a somewhat dirty appearance. An ivory head rises to cap the ale with short statured early structure and shy isolated lacing. Its kinda obvious that the beer needs a lot more carbonaiton.

Pez-like in sweetness, its confectioners' scent is alluring when combined with the bready-rich scent of wheat malt, lemony esters, white pepper, and light clove. Slightly bubblegumy, the beer is modestly minty, earthy, and vanilla-like.

Partly-malty and partly-grainy, the beer's early palate is rich, sweet, bready and doughy. Sugar cookies, confectioner's sweetness and fresh baked cake give the beer a taste that's highly balanced toward the malts. Balanced by lemon-like yeast esters and a boost from herbal and floral hops- the ale is much more that sweet and spice. A soft rebuttal from hops and alcohol keeps the beer variant and smooth.

Medium bodied, yet the ale should provide a creamier and drier impression, but instead the malt sweetness lumbers on the palate with mild fatigue and a lingering that wears out its welcome. Finishing malty-sweet and only timidly dry- the ale is well suited for hot summer days and as an introduction to wheat ales.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Had this beer on-tap at the brewery.

A: Darker golden, small head
S: Yeast, Malt, lemony.
T: Wheaty, some citrus but certainly an ale finish vs. a Hefeweizen.
M: Smooth but higher carbonation.

Decent beer but was kind of generic. Too average to be considered great.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I had this on-tap at the Pigeon Forge location.

A: Poured a very cloudy, unfiltered yellow color, with a slight ring posing as a head sitting on top of the liquid.

S: Like most SMB brews, I got basically nothing on the nose. Damn shame...

T: This had an unpleasant "watered-down" wheat beer taste, with virtually no spice component to add complexity whatsoever.

M: Despite the bland, diluted popsicle taste, this went down fairly smooth. The lacing was mild.

O: While this was drinkable, it was ultimately generic.

Serving type: on-tap
