Ordered at Golden Nugget Tavern. Pale golden color with one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin film. Some lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma of wheat with a touch of lemon grass.

Light flavor of wheat with a lemon finish. Clean and neutral.

Light and airy. About what I expected from the style.

Increadibly easy drinking beer on the first warm day of the season. Nothing really interesting going on like in some of the higher hopped wheat ales.

A- Pale golden with a one finger white head lasts well and leaves a couple rings of lacing on the glass.
S- Wheat, and a touch of citrus. Very mild.
T- There is a bit more depth of flavor here than in the aroma. Wheat, bready, a touch of butter and light caramel. A light lemon character in the finish.
M- Light, crisp, very easy drinking. Dry finish.
O- A good light beer. This would be enjoyable on a summer afternoon.

Ordered a pint at Stub & Herbs by the U. It appeared a hazy blonde, that cleared up as it warmed, with only a short head. I like, in theory, what Lucid's going for here, but this beer is too light of character. There's a pleasant clean dry malt character in the finish, along with a smattering of floral, fruity hop notes, but everything is too subdued. The body is on point, the right ingredients seem to be there, but everything needs to be amped up a little. I like where it's headed and will give the beer another shot next time I'm in MN.

16 oz tap pour into an inexplicably frosted glass.

A: Light pale yellow. Small white head. Laces extremely well which is surprising considering the frosted glass.

S: Wheaty, yeasty. Couldn't get a whole lot of nuance as it was still quite cold.

T: Full flavored. Wheat is balanced and avoids cloying. Hop is not PA big but suitably direct for the style. No bitter aftertaste but hops still hold a lot of character. A very light fruity (orange zest) finish.

M: About perfect. Pleasantly viscous with slight dry note on finish. Carbonation comes on stronger then finishes mellow.

D: So good. Very happy to have a quality lighter style from a local brewer. Nice work and I look forward to more brews from Lucid.

Pours a light straw color with a small white head. Has aromas of fruits as well as some hops. Flavor mirrors the aroma. The body and mouthfeel are very light but crisp, clean, and very easy drinking. Overall, fantastic for the style and highly quaffable.
