Interesting beer. Sweet and grainy smell. Doesn't taste anything like a hefeweizen like I expected. Seems more like a light sweet IPA. Nice head and lacing. A bit too sweet for my taste but still nice. nb

Aroma is pine, orange, and grapefruit. Taste is bitter, just a little alcohol, caramel breadiness, and a little fruit finish.Very good beer must try it.

Look: Clear gold with a nice white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing
Smell: Classic citrusy and piney fresh hop aromas
Taste: Somewhat sweet, lightly fruity, a bit of that wheaty dry bitterness combines with citric acidity in the finish
Feel: Light bodied, somewhat effervescent mouthfeel

Overall: The wheat seems to serve mostly to lighten the body and provide a lighter carbonation, though there is what might be a hint of wheat in the palate as well. A very nice, lightly sweet IPA

Pours yellow in color and smells like citrus. I'm guessing that "Little Sumpin'" was a whole lot of pineapple. Good hop kick. Very good.

A-Poured from a bottle to a pint glass, a copper/blonde tint and well carbonated, creamy white head.
S-Strong floral, citrus, orange, grapefruit aroma
T-A complex and wonderfully that produces such a unique and interesting taste profile. The malt has rich medium that's far better than many others in the category. It delivers a white bread biscuit type character. And then a well suited citrus orange notes balance it out. In addition, it has a slightly bitter but eminently pleasing finish.
M-Carbonation is more noticeable than other wheat beers and wheat body does provide pleasant and bready mouthfeel.
O-It's combination of wheat malt and hop balance I typically don't find in other wheat beers. It's so smooth, distinctive, and pleasing; a favorite indeed.

My favorite wheat ale by far!! Phenomenal tasting beer. Great citrus notes. A little of that wheaty/yeasty/funk to it. Another goodie from Lagunitas! Great summer drinking beer.

A -Frothy and slightly creamy white head that is slow to dissipate. Slow rising carbonation. Not a lot of carbonation. Slightly hazy and golden in color. Ever so slight amber tint. 4.25/5

S - Citrus/grapefruit up front. Light butter note and light malt backing to the grapefruit aroma. 4/5

T - Grapefruit/citrus hoppy main flavor. White bread malt flavor with a slight hint of butter. Lingering bitterness on the back end. Hops and bitterness dominate the flavor profile. 3.75/5

M - Medium bodied but retains a light summery feeling. Carbonation is noticeable but allows for the drinker to concentrate more on the flavor instead of the feel. 4.25/5

O - Good quality beer that has a ton of flavor. Major emphasis on the hops here which is no surprise. Definitely a good beer to go with spicy dishes. 4/5
