3.43/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: On Tap at the Boston, MA location

Appearance: Semi orange yellow clouded colour with enough white lace to go around.

Smell: Yeasty with hints of fermented wheat and a lemony back.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Smooth and quite crisp from the wheat malt, a bit on the dry side with a big yeast character. Light footed hop bitterness lets the malt play around with a refreshing hint of lemon in the finish.

Notes: A standard American Wheat here, nothing that will rock your taste buds but certainly a pint to cut into ones thirst.

Pours a slightly hazy blond color with a light head,aroma is a little yeasty and somewhat peach-like.The taste is pretty malty for a wheat beer with some fruitiness to it.Nothing really stands out but it is pretty darn drinkable.Not the best I have had from RB but not bad.

Tried this at the Rock Bottom in downtown Chicago. Seemed okay to me. The one I got was very cloudy, with a thin, lacy head. A light flavor with more wheatiness than I'd expect. Just a hint of clove of other spice, not over hopped, and with a citrusy note (that for having it without the lemon). Merely okay, though there my be some variation depending on which RB you visit.
