12oz, marked best before end of July. Pours hazy yellow with an orange hue. The white head is rather thin, never really stiffening up, leaving no lace.

The musty aroma is an interesting blend of yeast, grain, wet cardboard, and lemon, not unlike DFH's Midas Touch. The flavor follows, with a sizzling berry characteristic snapping off on the finish.

The mouth is light and bright, it snaps, crackles, and pops along the palate. It's very drinkable and shows more character than most of the Wheat beers I've sampled--they are not one of my favorite styles. But this one I look forward to revisiting.
