A: Bright, light golden/yellow. Fair amount of head that stays around for a little while, no lacing.
S: Wheat-citrusy, some small light spice (more grains of paradise-type than anything). Not clear, clean smell which throws off the scent a bit.
T: Good, interesting taste. Not the typically wheat beer, as it has more lemony/citrusy flavors than anything. Slightly sweet taste up front with a little hop tinge on the way down.
M: Light but refreshing. Lighter than many wheat beers, but oh-so-awesome on a hot summer day. Somewhat bubbly and frothy in a mouth swish, slight watery feel when drinking straight.
O: Solid beer overall. As far from a winter warmer as you can get, but would be absolutely amazing on a beach. Better than a couple other summery hef's I've had recently. Would buy again.

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.
