Hazy (not cloudy) yellow with a fluffy white cap that lingered. Light aroma, some lemony wheat character and that was it. Thin flavour, some sour wheat with a bit of lemon and slightly harsh, grassy bitterness. Light bodied, bordering on thin, dry, grainy texture. Not impressed. This really misses the mark for the advertised style.

Had on tap at the brewery...

A- Poured a hazy yellow color. Half finger white head dies down and leaves no lacing on the glass.

S- Very faint wheat notes with some light citrus and that's about it.

T- Once again there is a light citrus tone with a wheat backbone. Nothing else to this which makes it very underwhelming.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the beer. Wheat undertones left on the palate with a light citrus and alcohol in the aftertaste. No drying on the palate. Flavors were dull, dead, and faded.

D- This was a terrible beer for the style. I don't know what happened here but it was very underwhelming. Nothing I have had here wowed me which is a little sad.

A-Hazy light golden yellow with a thin white head that reduced to a ring and left spotty lacing.

S-A bit of wheat maly earthiness and a hint of citrus. All faint though and barely detectable.

T-Light lemony citrus flavours. No clove or banana to speak of. Not very exciting.

M-Light body with a sharp twang from the lemon flavours. Overall a bit thin feeling though.

D-Not too bad...at least it has some flavour. A bit to pedestrain of a hefe for my liking. If looking for a "light" beer here steer yourself towards the Pils.
