Poured from 12oz can into glass. Looks like the stamped on canning date is '08 29 18'.
Very slightly cloudy, straw colored body. Half a finger of off white head stays around as broken island and ring. Lacing from each sip mostly slides back down into the beer.
Aroma is mostly cracker and bready malts, along with a high smell of floral hops.
Taste is sweet cracker malts, which are later joined by some floral and grassy hops that have some bite. The after taste goes flat quite abruptly. The sharpness of the wheat is present but does not dominate.
Medium mouth feel. Good carbonation.
An easy drinking beer that is certainly a candidate for slamming. The lack of an after taste invites another quaff. Very solid, and well done.

Bright golden color with a light haze and off-white head. Aroma has resiny american hop notes with a clean malt backbone. Taste follows with a good hop/malt balanced. Malty at first with aromatic hops, slightly bitter and resiny on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. There is a light alcohol heat but nothing off-putting. Doesn't really feel like a lager, more like an IPA.

Never seen this previously until today and picked up a sixer. Was not expecting much but liked it very much. Big, rich creamy head and a full bodied malty-hoppy flavor. Quite nice and would buy it again.

Pours a clear deep straw/pale gold producing a huge, frothy, moderately lasting, white head that diminishes to a thin but clumpy surface cap with a moderate collar ring leaving a nice blotchy coating of lace. Aroma is lager yeast, white bread & biscuit, cereal; faint acetone, fruity with floral & lemony citrus. Taste is crisp & smooth with cracker/biscuit, grain but no noticable wheat flavors, lager yeast, lemon, floral & pine with thin grapefruit & hints of pepper & honey. Citrus, pine, biscuit, honey & the acetone hint dominate the dry finish rapidly diminishing into a lightly bitter, cereal, citrus, acetone like aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation, prickly, crisp & smooth (nicely rounded out by the wheat) with a dry finish & aftertaste. A pleasant ride & very NICE!

Very citrus (grapefruit) aroma. Taste is light and citrus hopped as well with moderate pithy bitter finish. Soft mouthfeel. Quite an enjoyable light refreshing beer. 6.3% is interesting because this beer feels lighter, more in the 5%-5.5% range. Enjoyable.

Golden yellow in color with a hazy appearance. Poured with a tall, soapy white foam with very good retention. Medium citrus aromas, orange peel and lemon zest with light floral notes.  Light, clean, malty aroma. Medium light  bodied with soft, medium high carbonation followed by a lightly smooth feel. Citrus orange and floral flavors with a clean, malty backbone. Medium spicy bitterness in the middle followed light malty and mellow citrus hop notes. Finished cleanly with light citrus orange and malty notes. The hoppy lagers are getting better and better. Great balance with mellow hop complexity offset by clean, lager maltiness. Tasty and easy drinking.

Clear light gold color with good cap and lacing.

Aromas of mild grain and floral, herbal, spicy hops with a touch of resin.

Taste is hop forward which is not surprising as the label clearly states its a "hoppy wheat lager" and the grain follows behind by several steps. Hop flavors lean toward the citrus side with herbal and spicy elements accenting that. Rather nice, fairly complex and well integrated hop flavors but hops are emphasized.

Solid medium texture with balancing carbonation.

A striking brew with more room presence than the usual lightweight wheaters.
