Pours a light straw color with some bubbly head that fades away fairly quickly. Smells a little yeasty, and slightly flowery. Tastes very clean, some sweetness, a little hoppy bitterness on the backend. The mouthfeel is very bubbly but not harsh,. Finishes a little sour, but not bad. All in all, it's a very nice blonde. I would definitely get it again, especially for a hot day.

When visiting the brewery they said that this was made with 60% wheat, but brewed as a lager - I'm not sure how you'd classify that, but the comments that it seems to be a cross between a kristalweizen and lager seem to make sense.

It is a very pale straw colour with a moderately lasting frothy head, good lacing. There is little aroma, although some hops detectable. The taste is of citrus hops, with a pleasant but subdued bitterness. Carbonation is well managed. I think of it as being quite a pleasant lager. A nice summer drink.

Pours pale macro colour with a surprisingly good head and good lacing. Aroma carries a slighty whiff of citrus. The beer is light in flavour, low bitterness but with a slight subtle note of the citrusy hops and even a little maltiness. Perhaps a little sulphury qualities like I'd associate with a lager. Carbonation is good.

Overall a good refreshing beer without a lot to it. No faults and a good balance. I would not classify it as a kristallweizen though, perhaps an american wheat.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pale Golden colour, slow rising bubbles. Good head retention. Some lacing on the glass towards the end of the beer.

Smell: Bit skunky actually. Caramel malts and citrus hops however are in nice balance although quite weak.

Taste/ Mouthfeel: Kinda weird, it’s like cascade premium crossed with a Kristal Weizen. Bitey carbonisation which goes down easy and smooth with some coarseness on the palate. Again, caramel malts, with some zesty, citrus hops which fight back and forth and balance really quite well. Finished with a smooth malt finish on the palate with that hop bitterness on the side.

Drinkability/Overall: Had this on tap at cascade brewery and in a bottle. Both were nice experiences. Definitely not a genuine wheat beer. More like a larger cross wheat beer. Pretty average, but hits the spot on a hot day.
