Pours hazy lemon yellow with small white head, smells sweet of wheat and citrus slight hops, tastes of sweet malty wheat slight yeast on the front and finishes citrusy and hoppy, smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

I enjoyed this one.. It reminded me of a Hacker Pschorr wheat beer. Would definitely get this again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Opaque yellow with a one finger cap and solid lacing.

Aroma: citrus peel, mostly orange but a touch of key lime as well.

Flavor: Key lime peel comes through more as a tart citrus, and is balanced well by the sweet orange. Hints of coriander, over a fairly neutral grain and yeast profile.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dissipating finish.

Overall: I'm a fan, cool twist to a popular beer style.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Poured from bottle into a standard pint glass. Appearance is a light yellowish with a fair amount of haze. Very little white head.


Smell - Quite a bit of wheat and just a little hint of citrus.

Taste - Slightly tart upfront. Not as wheaty as you would think based off of the smell. Just a hint of lime/citrus. Lingering after taste that's slightly piney.

Mouthfeel - Really light body on this one. It's almost like a sparkling water.

Overall - Not bad, but not really great either. It's pretty light and goes down fast. You could probably crush quite a few of these on a warm day.

From a bottle, pours a hazy light yellow with a fizzy white head that disappears just as fast as it arrived.

The nose is heavy wheat, lemon, hay and straw notes. Very earthy with just a faint bit of citrus. The flavor is similarly as boring and non-complex. There is this disgusting corn syrup flavor that I don't like, mostly just more wheat and lemon.

This isn't that good. I am sure it may be refreshing in the warm weather and my options are limited, but I wouldn't seek this again.
