Yellow and hazy, fair head and ok lace.

Aroma is yeasty up front, with some wheat and grass notes, and a nice crispness that's not hoppy but has a feel reminiscent of a light hop bite.

Body is pretty good, thick and rich, yet way easy to drink, and very thirst quenching.

Had at Choice City Deli in Fort Colliins, CO.

Extremely pale, more like a Wit in color. Quite flabby foam and some sharp carbonation. Nothing creamy about it. Extremely light mouthfeel and a tart sensation.

This tastes more like an American Wheat, and a pale one. There is just a hint of malty taste, but mostly it's club soda with a lemony note. This gets close to sourish and finishes with a bitterish twang. This doesn't seem to have much life in it. It's just oddly tart and lemony with a touch of dishwater.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

this is a bit of a miss for me. a watered down American hefe, lacking the yeast complexity that makes these beers tick. it pours a slightly cloudy dull brass color, light as anything, with a one finger white head that's difficult to maintain as I pour. I get just a touch of ripe banana in the nose, and some herbal quality that's out of place, as well as a very light white wheat malt waft. it sort of smells like a neutral skin lotion, which is calming and a little sexy. the flavor stars great, the first second is fruity and light, very summery, but some metallic notes arise, as does some stale yeast. it tastes like a beer that's been left out in a summer rainstorm, got watered down, and forgotten about for a few hours as the sun came back out and baked it a little bit. its just a tad unpleasant for a second, before it finishes rather clean, as if to tidy up after itself. much appreciated there. fine carbonation and an excessively light body. this is a brewery that I know can do some incredible stuff, so this was a letdown for me. the good news is they've got 3 or 4 other bombers on the shelf waiting to be tested. im hoping I just picked the wrong one for tonight.
