A - Pours a staw yellow with a two-finger white head. Heavy sticky lacing.

S - Lots of citrus with a good amount sweet malt.

T - Citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange peel. Nice amount of sweet bready malts with a slight bit of piney hops in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

O - This reminds more of a pale ale than a wheat. Delicious none the less. This is a beer I plan on coming back to often.

Enjoying a glass of this in-tap at Lou Malnati's pizzeria in Chicago while I wait for the pizza to arrive. Served in paint glass, this beer is a vey clear, medium golden color with a white head that's about half an inch thick when first served. Head settles pretty quickly to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass. Barely any lacing to speak of. Aromas of slightly toasted, somewhat biscuity, caramel malt notes and certainly some wheat, rounded out with a bit if hops. The taste pretty. Much follow suit with slightly atoasted, biscuity, fairly mildly sweet caramel malt presence along with some wheat notes that give way to n earthy, slightly citrusy, floral hop presence. Good balance of flavors. Has a very crisp, slightly prickly, somewhat smooth and frothy medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish. Beau to drink in a good way.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

L: Pours a clear medium golden color. Two fingers of thick creamy white head. Nice lacing.

S: Big time hop aroma... citrus and wheat... floral.

T/F: Malty and smooth with a mixture of yeast and bread dough quickly giving way to a classic Lagunitas hop profile. Citrus and tobacco mingled with peppercorns. Medium mouthfeel... a little bit sticky. Dry and hoppy on the finish.

O: Another great beer from Lagunitas. The hoppy wheat whatchamacallit works very well. This is one of those 'will drink any time' kinds of brews.

It's all about hop and I love it. It's piney, floral and fruity (mostly grapefruit), the bitterness Is great. The wheat malt light presence permits a good balance
