Pours golden yellow with an amber orange hue with a slightly off-white finger of sticky foam.

Grapefruit, orange, slightly grassy, pine.

Straight up citrus and a little bready.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, fruity, and crisp.

Overall, an absolutely solid brew.

Tulip glass.

A: Pours pale color with two fingers of dense, beautifully formed head with generous, sticky lacing. Brilliant clarity, excellent retention. Champagne like effervescence.

S: Pear, generic hops, slightly sweet pale malt, a little pepper, honey-soaked pineapple. A fairly potent aroma.

T: Grainy wheat and malt, notes of apple and pineapple, and an undertone of nondescript hops and mildly sweetish malt. Finishes with a mild bitterness.

M: Medium body, slightly creamy texture, with medium-high carbonation.

O: Pretty tasty, fairly drinkable, and by no means a typical wheat beer. Solid but nothing to wow you with.
