Absolutely love this beer. I drink this very often with my family since it is my mother's favorite. Great beer during the summer, really tasty and flavorful. Very citrusy and tastes great with an orange slice.

Very good beer, one of my personal favorites. It is an unfilterd wheat ale, so be sure to tilt the bottle over and give it a good whirl to stir it up before enjoying. Has a good orange zest, finished by a nice tang. I'll keep this as my go-to.

Dirty Blonde is a great summer beer and the slight citrus flavor is just right in my opinion - not to much, not to little. Taste wise it's not as bitter as Oberon, but a little less sweet than Shock Top.

This one pours a perfect blonde color with a thin and rich white head. The head settles leaving a thin lace.

The nose is earthy and grassy with hints of bread, camphor and apples.

The taste is peppery hops n a dry malt bed with some pine, lavender and vanilla in the mix.

The mouthfeel is rich and satisfying with this particular style.

Overall a very drinkable and enjoyable beer.

Poured into a "weizzen" style glass, though this beer is an American Wheat, but the glass fits the style all the same.

Pours a two finger head and retains a nice luster. Color is exactly what I want to see from this style of beer. Hazy, cloudy and sort of deep lemon yellow.

It has a nice mouthfeel, an orange coriander flavor that is long lasting, about halfway into the beer i'm feeling like I will drink another after I gulp the rest of this down.

Cheers!
