A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that hardly died down.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops—oranges stand out in particular—are present in the nose along with some hints of melons.
T: The taste follows the smell, having somewhat stronger flavors of melons in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is extremely drinkable seems to be like a lighter version of an APA.

Poured into a “Sophia” glass @40 degrees. Lots of carbonation with a half-finger head which rapidly disappeared. Unmistakable pine aroma with something a bit off putting in the background. That notwithstanding, the flavor is there, pine along with an (unidentifiable by me) fruit undertone. Very smooth. The best wheat I’ve had, and I’m not a wheat fan.
