Pours a hazy grapefruit color with a decent (controlled) head and great lace.
Smell is MIA with just the faintest hints of citrus, malt amd banana.
Taste is betteer, with malt, grapefruit, banana and light hops. Hops fades to banana in the aftertaste and gets a bit cloying.
A medium bodied ale, OK to drink but I wouldn't recommend or repeat.

This brew pours a cloudy yellow color and has a marginal whitish head. The nose has some quiet citrus tones and wheaty malts. The taste is mostly wheat malts with again subtle fruit. The body is really light for the style and over carbonated. Needs lots of glass swirling to help go down smooth.

Sweaty betty Blonde. This beer didn't look like a wheat beer, it was very clear and had an odd acidic taste. Maybe this beer was handled poorly before I tasted it, but maybe not.

A This beer was poured by the bar keep and was super clear, so much so that it looked like an American pils. It had a big head that went away almost immediately.

S sweet estery smell.

T There is a little acidic green apple taste that has a puckering effect. It is unique and unlike other wheat beers.

M Thin a little malty sweet. Low carbonation.

O This is not my style. I like wheat beers, but prefer the banana flavors over the apple, it's a personal thing I know. It is worth a try, but I'm glad I don't have a six pack.

12oz bottle poured into a 12oz tumbler.

I'm sweatin' up a storm after cooking up some Old Rasputin beef stew, so I figured this would be appropriate.

Pours a very crisp light golden color with a nice creamy one finger white head that looks awesome, nice light streams of bubbles up the side. Nose is not so nice, it's got a bit of a chemical note to it, also some very faint hops.

Very fruity, very light, a bit of that clearning solution from the nose comes through as well. It's a good intro to craft beer, nothing to write home about. Theres a bit of a lemon that I'm starting to notice as well. Mouthfeel is nice and big with lots of carbonation.

It's a good hot day drinker but I wouldn't get it again.
