I picked up a bottle of this in order to try something new without knowing anything about it. After finishing the bottle rather quickly I thought this must be a well rated beer. This site confirmed that my peers love this beer. It is a very easy drinking, smooth wheat beer with robust taste. There is not one flavor that dominates, it's just smooth and wonderful. This was a great surprise and helps make me a fan of wheat beers again.

If this beer was a friend, it would be the one you choose to spend the majority of your free time with!
