Since I hate wheat ales, I put off trying this for a long time. Nothing like a free tick to change that up.

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. It certainly is smooth and consistent. But the wheat character is pretty mild and almost seems like a cross between a wheat ale and a blonde. Easy drinker, for sure. Not overly interesting. Though I am sure they were appealing to the easy drinking mass market.

Poured into a snifter

A: Hazy gold. Almost no head or bubbles. Not much lacing.

S: Floral, wheaty

T: Smooth, sweet, light, refreshing. The wheat characteristics come though. A slight, hoppy finish.

M: Light to medium. Somwhat frothy.

O: Average, not too exciting. I hear it's better on draft. Sessionable.
