Sampled on New years Eve from home. Bottle chilled to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured in to a "Bud Light-Omaha" pint glass.

Poured a light copper-amber in color with really no head to speak of. Some light spotty lacing was seen. Something right off the bat wasn't right this this on. Maybe from a bad batch? The aroma is really good, just of some grains and spice. the taste was...well...horrible! Tasted very flat with bitterness. After 3 sips it was a drain pour. Guessing it was either a bad batch or just plain old as I didn't see a date on the label. Would I try it again? Yeah, as to be fair I always like to try a brew twice if I can. So much for my 'lucky 7's' as this was my number "777" beer review on here.

Aroma (3.5): Good enough aroma. Is what a wheat smells like, nothing special
Appearance (4): Good color. Cloudy, hazy, all that jazz
Taste (3.5): I like the taste of this more than most. It tastes like a good, unassuming wheat beer.
Palate (4): About what you'd expect.
