Appears a semi-transparent light gold with a small white head that fades into a mild film. Hearty streams of CO2 levels make this brew look interesting. Streaky spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of freshly cut wheat, and straw, along with a light lemony citrus that compliments the style.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with the American Wheat yeast coming to the forefront of the flavors with a mild touch of spice shining through.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly tart, citrusy, hints of grains of paradise, spritzy, mildly yeasty, and semi-dry.
Overall, enjoyable while I was enjoying the atmosphere. Nothing jumping out with a "wow" factor but I didn't expect that from an American Wheat.

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

Appearance: hazy yellowish orange color with a 1/2" head that lasts a bit. Some spots of lace dot the glass during the session.

Smell: light wheat and lemon citrus are very mild on the nose.

Taste: mild wheat profile with some lemon zest, mild grassiness, and little bitterness. Overall a milder wheat beer than expected.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish. Aftertaste is very brief.

Drinkability: despite the mild profile, I found this to be quite drinkable on a hot summer afternoon.

Pours a light yellow color with a thin head and very little lace on the glass. The aroma was of wheat and citrus but was almost nonexistant. The taste is thin it starts with a wheat backbone and has a hint of citrus and lemongrass in the middle. The taste is watery though. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Overall if you are looking for a lighter beer go for their peach. This beer was very watery and thin.
