this beer poured a hazy amber color with a slightly off white head that recedes to lacing leaving trails on the tasting glass. the aroma hits you with a bit more roastiness than you would expect on a wheat beer, and a light bit of hops. it tastes primarily of wheat with a bit of roasted malt and some citrus hops. the beer has a decent bit of body to it and adequate co2. not a bad beer but it's not the one I'd buy a pint of.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma is funky. A few dots of lace on cloudy gold. Some wheat, unfiltered taste. Lots of malt. Carbonation bubbles rising. Moderate sourness. Sour was negative on palate. Medium mouthfeel.Apparently revived product, for the spring.

Pours a clouded amber with a huge amount of bubble rising up. Fragrance is a slight citric one. Flavor is pretty smooth and a light wheat taste, though not much to it. Feel has a regular amount of bubble on the tongue and a pretty hearty liquid feel. Drinkable and smooth, but it is a pretty light version of a wheat brew I say.
