On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Large white, fluffy head, good retention on a hazy golden body. Aroma includes some mild fresh citrussy hop bitterness and a hint of lemon zest. Taste is mildly bitter, again some lemon and not too much else. Lacking a bit in flavor but certainly should be approachable and drinkable to most.

Poured into a weizen glass.

3.0 A: Clear light orange color. Got less than one finger of head to form and it left pretty quickly. Short ring of lacing.

2.5 S: Aroma on this is pretty uninspired. Lacking all the usual suspects of a hefe - very little spiciness, no yeastiness at all. Neutral wheat is the strongest thing going. It does have something like a bubble gum aroma, but it's probably just the hops. Speaking of which, hops are a grassy floral combination. Not particularly enticing.

2.25 T: Taste is even more disappointing. Wheat and then the hoppiness found in the nose - floral, bubblegum, grass. Light wheat flavor. Again disappointing is about all you need to know.

2.5 M: Medium body. A bit less carbonation than I'd like. Missing the creaminess, which is probably due to the lack of yeast.

2.0 D: Nothing good going on in this. Avoid.
