Real substantial malt appearance for a wheat beer, this one was darker than average, came in orange and with lots of haze. Aroma was dropping heavy on the lemon and wheat notes.

Taste imparted a heavy percentage of wheat, citrus, hoppiness above average but not to the level of some ipa like wheat beer levels. Some minimal spice rack from the yeast. Not a bad hot summer afternoon option.
