The hops are right upfront with a lemon-lime bite. More hoppy then I expected for a wheat. Still pretty much a summertime beer.

Condition - canned and about 1 month old.

Aroma - lemon and lime hops with a touch of pine. Practically no malt or yeast aroma.

Taste - like the aroma. Lemon and lime forward with some nice citric tangyness. Clean booze. Where is the wheat? I don't care. It tastes good.

Overall - a well made American hoppy wheat beer with Sprite flavored hops that doesn't taste like it has much wheat.

Golden yellow in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Super light, subtle wheat sweetness and an underlying bitterness. A mixture between a pilsner and wheat ale. Crushable.
