A- Pours a medium level of hazy with a swirl around the bottle to get it out. Bright yellow in color like a wheat should be, with a 2 finger head that retains a minute or two and has decent lacing.

S- Light, grainy, and a little citrusy for most of the scent. At the back end of the sniff there is a hint of very mild, balancing hops bitterness.

T- Starts very light and grainy with a fairly strong citrus presence. Lemon is prominent in the fruit flavor, which takes over the middle half of the drink. Citrus flavor lingers until the end, when a very mild hops presence appears. The combination of citrus and hops gives a bit of a metallic flavor that lingers after the drink ends.

M- Highly carbonated and pretty light flavors make this one very drinkable, but the heavier wheat presence limits it a bit. Still, this is in line other wheat ales as far as weight.

Overall, nothing especially special here, just an everyday wheat with a little above average citrus flavor. Metallic flavor really brings the flavor back to average.

For an American Wheat it's very pleasant to drink. It was a little more hoppy than I was expecting for a wheat beer and it has a slight IPA like feel in the mouth. Very good taste and flavor but personally I could have used a little more. I'm familiar with very flavorful beers and I enjoy ones that have a bit more weight to them. This would be a good summer session beer.

Overall it's a good beer but there is nothing that really distinguishes it from other craft wheats that I've had; if you do find yourself at Triton I recommend the Rail Splitter IPA.
