Updated. Consumed 8/29/15.
Bottle Julian date 194 so mid July

Pours light gold-yellow, ample 1 finger head, retains well. Good clarity as always with lagunitas.

Nose is typical lagunitas yeast and familiar hop profile. Some lemon, cut grass.

Taste carries the lemon and grass with some decent bitterness. Good malt balance and sugary sweetness. Could somewhat detect the wheat but barely.

Light to medium body and medium carbonation. A little slickness and lingering bitter aftertaste.

This is a solid beer from a solid brewery. I know it's classified as a pale wheat ale and the wheat does give it some character, but not over the top. The familiar lagunitas yeast profile is alive and well again.
