I've probably only had this 50 times in the last 18 months. Served in a tulip glass in my brand new beer dungeon.

A - Light amber / golden / orange with white head. Very clear for a wheat. Nice lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Fruity (Passion, orange, citrus) hoppiness and a bit of wheat.

T - Very nice crisp wheat with fruity citrus tones. Finishes with a bit of pine hoppiness and more fruitiness.

M - The wheat brew makes for a very nice light mouthfeel. The finish is dry and fruity on the back end with lingering hop goodness.

O - An awesome summer beer that I will drink anytime of the year it turns up in my area (which is not often enough). A tossup for my favorite year-round FFF with Robert the Bruce.
