Sampled at the Stone Sour Fest yesterday, drank this right after the Bruery's brew of this style and this one just fell short to it, another very easy drinking beer though

A-Pale golden yellow, color, very cloudy, 1/2 inch soapy white head, some retention, minimal lacing
S-Wheat, phenolic accents, tiny bit of cloves, bananas, lemon zest, funky yeast, and a hint of tart
T-Started off pretty tarty for this kind of brew, but wheat then took over, lots of citrus in the feel and aftertaste, later a bit of oranges, not much malt at all, pretty chewy towards the end but still refreshing
M-Sweet and tarty mouthfeel that was a little chewy at times, thin bodied, nice level of caronation, very light feel and taste
D-Could drink lots of this, most likely not much alcohol in it, smooth and crisp, tasted like a light macro if you take away the slight tart and chewier feel

Did not expect this to blow me away and it did not, but again was a nice break from the all the other brews that led to my need for Tums at the end of the day, Craftsman is a cool brewery and I am always happy to try a new beer from them, might drink again if we cross paths on a hot summer day
