T: Light grains and fruit.
F: Smooth and crisp, medium light body and above average carbonation.

Time for a pale wheat to go with my taco salad.

Appearance : A golden straw colored body, very very little haze. 95% transparent. The head initially pours 3 fingers but dwindles down to a single finger leaving layers of light lacing around the lip of the glass.

Aroma : Clean malts and very faint orange rind. Some oat, but mostly wheat aromas waft up. A weak bouquet overall that requires deep inhalation to analyze.

Taste : Nice explosion of freshly peeled orange right underneath a wheaty body. The orange rind continues throughout the taste, and it ends crispy, light, and arid. I can't stress enough how much this tastes like a freshly peeled orange including the rind. Very nice.

Mouthfeel : Appropriate for the style - very creamy with a certain shock from the carbonation, yet not too intense, and follows through to a semi-dry finish.

Overall : I think this is better than "okay". Its definitely craft-worthy, and although it isn't particularly amazing it is easy to drink and has lots of great natural orange flavors. Recommended.

Lucid air might not look like much, pouring like any American adjunct filled lager. The first sip hsweet. gives lie to any illusion of mediocrity, its a Very light wheat taste, with just the slight hint of hops to cut through any illusion of being too sweet. Overall a well made beer with subtlety that many craft breweries should learn from, with their imperial this that and the other style.
