Looks like a pale or a hefe, smells like a lemony hefe, even tasted like one at first but before I could swallow the flavor was like lemon pine sol. Got down half of it but this was a drain pour.

Not a bad wheat brew, by any means. All of the beers brewed at the OBX Brewing Station are well-crafted. This one is no exception. It could stand to have a nit more inthe way of wheat aroma and pounch in the flavor department, but worth a try. Prost!

I had a sample of this at the Brew Pub Sunday. Noticed that it got fairly good reviews. I thought this was the weakest beer I had out of the four. Poured a pale yellow with very little head (none of the samplers had much of a head). It was cloudy like a wheat beer with a citrus aroma. The initial taste was a mild, soft wheat beer. The followup however was like someone poured lemon juice concentrate into the beer. No subtlety here. A blast of strong lemon juice. The mouthfeel was about right for a wheat beer (not too watery). The blast of lemon juice keeps this from being very drinkable as a session beer. Would pick something else to quench my thirst as well.

Served as part of the 4 beer sampler at the OBX Brewing Station.

Similar in appearance to the Olsch, but a cloudier yellow with more drifting white foam. Very faint smell, certainly not a hefe that bursts forth with banana clove - subdued.

Taste is quite wheaty with notes of citrus. Comes together ok, but not outstanding. Just good.

Drinkable - but I liked the Olsch better.
