This is their summer seasonal pale wheat ale. I had it today.

The color was a lemon yellow with a little gold coloring at the top; it was hazy and had a nice white head that stayed around for awhile, and left lacing until the very end.

The smell was of pleasant wheat, complimented by malts and a nice citrus hop presence.

The taste began with a strong wheat taste, and through the middle there was some malty sweetness like in the aroma, and then it finished with a very pleasant citrus taste.

The mouthfeel was more so thick and not so carbonated. But the carbonation that was there was very nicely balanced.

Overall, the beer was very, very smooth. Hardly any hop bite, but yet I could taste them, but mostly it was a citrus finish (either lemon or orange, but i would say lemon). This is a very refreshing beer.

As far as wheat beers go, this was below average. I am taking into account the fact that this is my least favorite style. The beer was a cloudy straw color and had a smell like molded hay. The taste was wheaty and it had a soapy aftertaste. Not a beer I would revisit from a style I try to avoid.

**Edit: This beer was the '06 version but still the same beer so no need to add another beer.
