Bench mark for the style this beer is high quality. A very drinkable brew that could be served to even the most advanced beer snob and excepted with praise. Pours a nice head, has a good flavor without any aftertaste. If you like wheat beers this masterpiece awaits your palate.

Bottom Line: Style masterpiece.
