Golden straw colored body hosts a quick fading off white head that stands at a half inch. Nose has notes of honey comb, lemon pulp and fresh cut clean straw. This beer hits the tongue with a bang of lemon zest and big bold wheat. This is a clean and refreshing wheat beer while also being nicely flavorful. It carries a simple level of complexity that makes it a well rounded and overall exceptional basic wheat beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no date on the bottle that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a beautiful cloudy, straw color with one-finger white head that soon dissipated leaving a thin, almost unbroken layer of small bubbles, moderate lacing and lightly carbonated as is normal for the style.

SMELL: bread and lemon citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, bready with lemon citrus, very mild hop profile.

PALATE: this beer has a creamy mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this beer looked and smelled better than it tasted, it's good but not my favorite wheat beer so will probably not have this one again.

Entry No. 2 of Craft Beer Expo. I was pleasantly surprised by this offering. Notes are from my rating scale and manual I carried with me while I was there. There's not much to this description as I was chatting it up with some girls at the tasting table. What I've jotted is all I got.

Serving style : 6 oz taster glass

Appearance (3.75) : Hazy orange glow. Around 70% opacity.

Aroma (3.5) : Strong wheat and orange fruit. Bouquet, while simple, is medium to strong.

Flavor (4) : Pleasantly hoppy, lots of malt too. Barley, orange rind, pine, and a lightly woody character.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Light bodied, creamy, wet, ending semi-dry.

Overall (3.81) : "Good wheat character with a hop bite, refreshing and sessionable." Would Buy - Yes; Would Try Again - Yes.

Pours a smooth golden color, two fingers wide head at the top, poured into a wheat beer glass. Smells strongly of wheat and citrus. More lemony smell than any other wheat beer I've had. Mouthfeel is pretty light, feels like a wheat beer. Tasting of lots of lemon, just like the smell. Goes down smooth, you can definitely taste the wheat behind the citrus. Lemon aftertaste, but not sour. My favorite wheat beer.
