12oz can, served in a willi becher. Cloudy golden copper body, one finger white head, good retention, frothy lacing. Smell is citrus, wheat, a bit of grapefruit, light spice. No bubble gum or distinct clove. It's a hoppy beer through and through and that follows on the palate where there is a bit of distinct grapefruit zesty bitterness, wheat as well as a touch of lemon and orange. Mild floral bitterness accompanies the zest on the backend. Mouthfeel brings a medium lighter body, good carbonation, mild bitterness overall, easy to drink.

Poured 12oz can into snifter. Hazy gold color with a 2 finger white head that leaves rings of lacing on my glass. Aroma and flavor are a wave of tropical hop aromatics: mango, tangerine, and passionfruit all leap out of the glass. There is the wheat base and light malt backbone. Feel is light and crisp with a nice hop bite and slight dry finish. Refreshing for any summer day.

Sun Crusher pours a brighter golden color, with a big long lasting and lacing head. Nice sweet aroma, creamy wheat, and hints of citrus fruits. Flavor is creamy and crisp, hints of citrus, and just a note of the hops. Good body and feel. Overall, a very well crafted beer, hops are not overpowering, but present.

Hazy gold color with a tinge of green. Moderate head which leaves two rings of lace and streaks in between.

Citrusy with a punch like sweet fruitiness. Beautiful floral hop nose.

The hop becomes biting with definite grapefruit overtones. The sweetness is also gone, although it's not quite dry. No notable wheat. Good body with subdued carbonation. While bitter the aftertaste is short. Overall, this has the complexity I like to have in a beer.

Pours an orangey golden yellow with a touch of chill haze and particulate.

Floral and citrusy hop notes.

A smidge of orange and lemon-pith with sweet toasted malt flavor.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall, while nothing to write home about, a nice brew on a hot day.

Golden beer with slight orange hints. Very thin, white colored crown that dissipates quickly, only leaving an outer ring. Small sediment floating throughout.
The nose is a citrus bomb. Tangerine, mango, oranges & even pineapple all tangle together.
The wheat is prominent in the taste and comes through first. The citrus notes play the background and then quickly turn into a dry finish, leaving you wanting another drink.
Overall, it's a solid pale wheat. A little underwhelming although it's nice, light and refreshing but nothing groundbreaking.
