Bottled date of 03/28/17

Appearance - Pours straw yellow with some streaky yeast trails found spiraling around the glass. A white, near finger width head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving behind a thin, broken layer of suds on the surface and a razor thin ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Wheat and cereal aroma with a hint of honey and floral hops.

Taste - Follows the nose. Wheat and light cereal sweetness backed by a hint of floral hops and a faint fruitiness.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with fair, slightly bitey carbonation. Slick, smooth drinker with an easy finish.

Overall - Decent wheat. Nothing off-putting, but nothing special all the same.

12 oz bottle poured into glass.
Look: dark gold, thin white head.
Smell: a little bit of grapefruit, some malt.
Taste: malt, and little bit of hops, no sign of wheat anywhere
Feel: Average, easy to drink.
Overall: This beer would be great if it wasn't marketed as a Wheat Beer. The Wheat is nonexistent. This beer is refreshing though.

355 ml bottle poured into a snifter. Light gold, hazy. Two fingers frothy head, diminishing with spare lacing. Moderate malty, dough aroma upfront. Some hay. Low citrusy and floral hop aroma. Light sweet malt flavor. Light medium lasting dry finish, medium light body, high carbonation and bit of creaminess.
Thirst quenching, good wheat beer. I would like it bit more sweet and bit more bitter in flavor. Head diminishes too fast and leaves almost no lacing.

Look: Very nice pale/orange straw. Unfiltered. Good amount of carbonation head dissipates rather quickly. Looks great.

Smell: Piney, citrus, hops. Smells clean and refreshing. Bit of spice.

Taste: Citrus, hops, a bit floral, with a tiny bit of spice on the end. Great and refreshing. Not necessarily the greatest American Wheat I've had but it would certainly be great at a summer BBQ. Anyone who enjoys the macro stuff would would love this.

Feel: Nice and light in the mouth, a bit of a tangy feel.

Overall: Not necessarily the greatest American Wheat I've had but it would certainly be great at a summer BBQ. Anyone who enjoys the macro stuff would would love this. North Coast is one of the best breweries in the country in my opinion, but I can tell this beer isn't one of their main focuses. Regardless, I would buy again for a beach day. 6/10.

Yellow beer, its a wheat beer so clarity isn't gonna be something that I would think as qualifying as ideal. Anyways, it is one of the duller yellow colors, the aroma was all about those grains. Wheat.

Clean taste, dry finish. Has a lot of wheat to it. No other frills, not hopped up, not a fancy yeast, no adjuncts unless you count the wheat itself.
