I had this on-tap in a pint glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: medium yellow hue with a very light haze and a somewhat lazy effervescence. Head is a thin layer of white foam. Not too bad!

Smell: lightly wheaty with just a hint of something piquant -- sour maybe. Not particularly strong in any case, though.

Taste: rather grainy right up front with a little bit of a sharpness around the edges; a refreshing wheaty character runs all the way through. Reminds me a lot more of an American-style pale wheat ale than a German weizen. Not bad, but not particularly exciting.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess for the style. Nothing to complain about here.

Overall: quite refreshing indeed. While the graininess is just a tad harsh up front, the wheaty character really smooths out the finish. Quite drinkable, but otherwise unremarkable.

On tap at Black Raven.

A - Served a very light, clear yellow with a nice foamy cream-colored head. Bits of lacing were left on the glass.

S - Not much here. Some pilsner malt, and subtle spice.

T - Banana, lemon, spices, wheat.

D - Light body and good carbonation.

O - Light, crisp and refreshing. Good summertime beer.
