This is a very enjoyable and complex beer and in no way did it remind me of any wheat beer I've ever had. Lots of sweet malts and a nice hop kick make you enjoy every single delicious sip.

Nice golden color,medium carbonation. Really enjoyable beer that stays in the middle of the road but I mean that as a compliment. Floral,citrus,and hops that are easy to taste but not screaming loud.

Can't ever go wrong with this brew. Always stocked in my fridge. Not Lagunitas best, but it's awesome and a definite crowd pleaser.

My favorite readilly available beer. It is so much more than a wheat ale. Its has the best characteristics of several styles. A super complex hop and rich floral flavor that is still easy to drink. I keep looking for a better beer and have not found one yet.

From a 355ml bottle served at 9 degrees Celsius into a snifter. Best before date: 24.03.2018

Look: The beer pours a brilliant gold with 2cm of white, puffy head that dissipates into a partial film after 2+ minutes. Exceptional lacing. Maybe a weisen glass would have increased the head and its retention.

Smell: Mild intensity and sweet-ish balance. American, citrusy, floral, and piney hops. Low malt character.

Taste: Same notes as the aroma. No esters or phenols.

Feel: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Creamy with some restrained alcohol warming.

Overall: Not as hoppy as IPA's or some APA's but certainly hoppier than your average weissbier. Less yeast, more hops. 7.5% ABV is well-hidden. It's a good brew.
