Pour: 12oz bottle, bottled 3-16-18. Poured into a tulip glass. Nice 1-2 finger white head. Dissipates into lots of clouds and some bubble lacing. Golden color with a fair amount of haze. Very attractive.

Nose: grapefruit, some bready malt.

Taste: citrus hops; mix of pineappple and grapefruit. Fair amount of bitterness. A little wheat malt but not a lot.

Mouthfeel: fairly viscous but with a clean finish. High carbonation.

Overall: reminds me of Founders PC Pils with a little more substance due tot the wheat. It’s a very nice looking pour that drinks well. Would buy again but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

A:
Pours a fairly clear gold (slightly hazy with the dregs) with active carbonation and an ample head. Decent retention; puffy clouds of lacing. (4.25)

S:
Lemon zest, white bread, bubblegum. (4)

T:
Bready with a fairly bright hop character with a kind of tea-lile, earthy finish. (4)

M:
Medium body with moderate carbonation and a smooth finish. (4)

O:
A very nice, balanced-but-interesting American Hefe.
It looks like a hefeweizen. The aroma and flavor are both hopped-up versions of a hefe as well. Nice citrus hops with some bubblegum from the yeast. Hop tea-lile aromatic characteristic and general not half bad. Drinkable and refreshing. (4)

Poured into a tall clear glass. Has a hazy, glowing goldenrod color. Fluffy finger tall head, lots of lacing.

Very floral and citrusy smell, mostly consisting of orange and tangerine. Nice dancing subtle grassy scent as well. Slight lemon peel scent and earthy wheat. Moderate carbonation.

Lemongrass and orange peel upfront. Crisp crackers, tangerine, lime, and even gumball in the taste and aftertaste as well for a sweet candy flavor. Altogether mixed with a wheat malt that balances it all out.

Light-bodied, but well-composed. Feel smooth and creamy.
