12 oz bottle. The brew pours a very very light straw color with a finger of white head over top. The clarity on this one is pretty minimal and there is a strong carbonation of large bubbles. This one is much lighter than most American wheat brews that I am used to. The aroma is very wheaty with a bit of creamyness in there, but overall, there is not a whole lot going on in this one. The first sip brings a fairly grainy flavor that is overlayed with a wheat creamyness. There is some very faint lemon zest hiding in the background that comes on in the finish. There is a touch of herbal/floral hop in there that just kisses the side of my tongue along with a mild bitterness, and these flavors really blend into the grainyness overall. Mouthfeel is moderate with a moderate carbonation. It has more body than I would have expected, but this is a good thing for this brew. Overall, this one is not a bad example of the style. It has a nice residual hop flavor and mild bitterness that carry through on the finish. I wasn't expecting the grainy character, so that is a little of a detraction, but this one would be pretty refreshing on a warm day.
