Very bright and hazy wheatbeer pour.

Smells tame. Slightly floral yeast profile, some faint lemongrass. Tastes like it smells: light and crisp, sweet wheat throughout with a wee bit of lemon on the finish. Similar to, say, 312 or Oberon, but there's just not as much going on here as with those other beers.

Disappointing. Smell was encouraging but first taste was suprisingly lacking any real flavor or feel. Extremely watery, faint lemon hint, definitely won't buy again.

Fairly decent beer by Wachusett Brewing. Very light and a good taste. I am more for the IPA's so this is fairly light to me. Definitely one to try.....

Another summer ale. Another yawner. Lemon flavorings may be the genuine article but they come off feeling somewhat artificial. Summer ales are far inferior to pilsners in my opinion, if hot weather refreshment is the goal.

8/27...pours light pale gold, a little dirty, light white foam. Heavy wheat nose, light yeast, light citrus. Taste is a wheaty blend - dry finish. Some citrus in the aftertaste. Plain but refreshing.
