From tasting notes. Appearance: cloudy, straw color, 2” fluffy, rocky, persistent head. Smell: Bread, yeast and a little sweet malt. Taste: This is an American style wheat ale with no banana or clove lurking around. It starts with sweet, fresh bread flavors and then the hops wrestle the flavors to a dry finish with just the right amound of lingering hop bitter accent. Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium high carbonation, medium full body.
