I love that this beer is year-round. Simple 6-pack, into a tulip.

A - pale yellow/orange. The head is 1-2 fingers and fades in a medium amount of time. The lacing is abundant and majestic. A nice fluffy puff of head remains on the surface.

S - sunshine and amazing. A little breadiness at the beginning that yields quickly to the glorious citrus hops. I don't smell booze at all, and there's nothing balanced here. It's grapefruit and citrus hops all the way, and it smells amazing.

T - there's a hint of smeet maltiness at the beginning and at the end but just like the nose, the citrus hops dominate. I have no complaints.

M - thicker and chewier than you would expect. Sticks around for a bit. The carbonation is dead-on. The bite sticks around for just a bit longer than I would prefer.

O - I wish all wheat beers tasted like this. This is far closer to an APA or even an IPA. My ratings are biased by my preference. If I rated on style, it'd be lower, but that would be a disservice to the beer. This beer is insanely good, and you owe it to yourself, if you're on this site, to get it if it's available. One of my top 10, across all styles.
