Poured from a 12oz bottle into a spiegelau wheat beer glass.

The look is light straw colored with a medium haze. I left the bottom sip in the bottle to not pour all the yeast in my drink. Some solid yeast particles floating. One finger head quickly disappears to a ring around the glass. Very light carbonation.

Smell is a bit tart and funky. Some citrus notes here, also seems a bit skunky? Maybe it's just me but its light and funky. Lots of fermentation here.

Flavor makes things make sense. Lots of citrus notes that compliment the nose quite well. Almost lemony, quite dry with a slight bitterness. Surprisingly smooth and I'm assuming the fruit flavors are the yeast and it works quite well.

Feel is quite smooth if not thin. A good summer beer here for sure lots of refreshment to be had. Seems to fit the purity law, but the lemon notes are strong in this one. Has some witbeer properties.

Overall very interesting a bit funky and not at all like a hefeweizen. Less hazy, less malty, and more bright in every way. Very interesting take on a wheat beer. Easy drinking easy street. Alright.

Light brown to pale, basic (but very drinkable), American-style wheat ale. Moving from the east coast, I sorely missed my beloved Yuengling traditional lager and sought a replacement. This and Sierravesa Nevada were the closest I could find. balanced hop/malt ratio, very mild if any aftertaste. It's nothing special flavor-wise, but it's a great go-to beer.

Murky light orange.

Nice bright white head; strong lacing.

Rich malt nose, hint of citrus. Nice start!

Thin mouthfeel.

Hops assert themselves in the taste; grapefruit with a hint of orange; melds into pineapple as the drink warms. Malts offer not much flavor but a nice bit of balance.

This is a style I normally hate, and I'm greatly enjoying this brew. A true session delight.

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a frothy eggshell white head that settles to a light layer and laces nicely.

S: Twangy wheat, citrus zest, a little spice, clove, peppery, bready, and a touch of sweetness.

T: Bready, wheat twang, zesty citrus, lemon and a hint of orange, peppery, a little clove spice, and just a touch of natural sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Super refreshing session sipper.

Drank from a bottle. Tastes like a basic beer with only a hint of wheat and oddly soil. Yes, soil. Nothing special. I'll stick with their Wolf Picker.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Smells of wheat and malt. Tastes of wheat, semi-sweet malt, yeast, and bread. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a good American Wheat.

From a 12 oz bottle in a variety pack, into a willibecher. About 75% of the time, this seems absolutely great. But there's an edge that doesn't seem right, kind of tinny and metalic and off, which is a little about the aftertaste and a little about the mouthful. Anyway, pours a glowing pale gold with a decent puffy white head and minimal retention. Nose is zippy yeast, grainy crackers with a little wheaty citrus. Taste is even better: everything in the nose, but also some more interesting floral and round melon notes...but then something goes off toward the end. Usually, I think these guys do no wrong...this isn't wrong, but it isn't quite as right as I was hoping it would be, either.
