Had this on tap at "The Tap" in Bloomington, IN. Here goes:

A: Good. Clear yellow with a one-inch head. Leaves some lacing, but less than normal for beers of the style. Also less carbonation than normal.

S: Amarillo hops impart a very floral smell; really, it smells like a bouquet of flowers. Citrus, mild grapefruit, peach and herbal grass. Also some wheat in the background.

T: Adequate hops, but not as complex as I would've liked - very grassy. Wheaty presence makes itself known at the back of the tongue. Overall, good but not great.

M: Nice and bready. Rather full-bodied for a wheat beer.

O: A solid beer. Was a little disappointed given the rave reviews, however.
