3.14/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
Appearance - Pale yellow-orange, with a very slight haziness. Head dies down rapidly, leaves some traces of lacing on the glass.
Smell - Sweet bread, honey, a little yeast,and unfortunately some oxidation. I am also picking up some citrusy hops in the aroma.
Taste - The first thing that jumps out at me is a white pepper/clove type of crisp spiciness, which may be a little too dominant. The wheat bread heart of the beer is actually quite nice, but it does not linger.
Finish - A dry and watery finish pops up quickly after sipping. A tad lemony and soapy as well.
Overall - Probably my least favorite beer from The Magic Hat brewery, but in all fairness, I am not the biggest fan of American style wheat beers in general. Give me a German style any day!

pours out a hazed gold colour with the addition of the dregs. little head with poor retention. the addition of lemongrass accentuates the overall already lemony aroma. definitely fruity. the taste is more of the same. while not a true hefe, there are some shared characteristics. underneath the lemony facade there is bits and pieces of hay and grass with some slight spicy notes. american pale wheat for sure, with a noticeable back end bitterness. this is a unique tasting beer. medium bodied with a coarse mouthfeel. drinkability is nice. would be really awesome to quench a thirst in the summertime.
overall, this is a twist on the american wheat style that leans heavily on the lemon quenching aspects. i picked this up on clearance for a really low price, and had it been summer, i would have bought multiple cases.
