[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a clear pale yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that was fully diminishing and had poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a mild grain malt and a soapy yeast with a hint of citrus (lemon).

The taste was very mild and had a light hint of citrus from the start with a mild funky yeast settling in towards the end. The flavor was short lived and very light after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall a very light Wheat beer, that I feel fell just a tad short. Although, the low ABV and easy drinkability make it a decent session brew...

A- Pours a clear golden yellow color with an off-white head.

S- The aroma is sweet malt and very fruity (almost artificial like Fruit Loops). 

T- The taste like the aroma is faint wheat in the background with more of the artificial fruity flavors that were present in the aroma.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a lot of carbonation.

O- Overall, I just wasn't a huge fan of this beer. Did not taste very fresh or natural.

Bottle: Poured a super pale yellow color ale with a medium size pure white foamy head with good carbonation and not much lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt notes with light citrus undertone. Taste is also on the lighter side of things with light wheat malt notes with some unrefined grain notes and light citrus finish. Body is super light with medium carbonation. Not going back for another one of those anytime soon.
