Another thanks but no thanks to rudzud.

Light airy head, mostly clear light honey color.

Nose bad fermented wheat like it sat in the sun, weird rubbery thing to it, weird burnt grassy thing, grainy thing too.

Taste ew, bad fermented hay grass, light rubber again and burnt weeds, almost like chewing on a dandelion, with some weird wheat but not a ton, little skunky like flavor, weird bitterness. Light copper taste. Finish slight dry syrupy, more bad fermented wheat and hay, weird rubbery.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall blech.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very light, some hints of wheat. Taste is wheat, lemon, mild, not getting any of the sugar cane advertised on the bottle. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Had in Quarter on tap. Review is based on accompaniment to the boiled crawfish and garlic grilled oysters I had at the bar.
Beer was a nice wheat ale that was more Krystal Weizen like in nose and taste. Smooth going down but still crisp on the tongue. Complimented both the light seafood crawfish meat and mustard...while not interfering with the big bolder flavor of the chargrilled oysters.
Not my style for drinking by itself...but worked well with food.

This beer suffers from poor marketing as much as anything else. I was expecting to have a beer with some sugarcane taste and sweetness. Sugarcane taste is minimal here. What is left is a beer that tastes like meadow, husk and light sugar. It is an ok representation of the style. I feel like I have had countless others like this and for me this is a pass.
