First had: on tap at Bethlehem

Poured a slightly hazy, bright straw-whitish-yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Served with an orange wedge. Aromas of light banana esters and typical wit spices. Taste of toasted grains, more of the typical wit profile, but a bit watered down... This was basically a Blue Moon clone, so after a couple sips, I plopped in the orange wedge, and let it take the edge off so I could finish it easier. Light body, fairly easy to drink, but lacking in any real complexity or taste. Sampler size is all that's required for this one.

This poured out as a cloudy looking yellow color with a fluffy white head on top that leaves just a film over top of the beer. The smell of the beer had some citrusy grain and wheat aromas to it. The taste of the beer is a little sweet and tart at the same time. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth and light. Overall this is a pretty good beer for summer time. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it though.

it appeared haze yellow typical for the style
very nice head thick clinging to the glass for a little while .
good citrus smell not to heavy.
it had a nice taste lemon and wheat went down nice refreshing not to filling.
the only thing I didn't like was the aftertaste almost watered down not typical for this style ,like it was missing something. Good would drink it again but could be better.
