On tap at the Bottle Shop in Dallas.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma features a lot of wheat, as well as some light floral hibiscus notes. The flavor is more of the same. The dominant flavor is definitely the wheat and biscuit malt, but I also get some floral notes. There is also some yeast character and some of the spiciness that assume comes from the yeast. Easy to drink. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.33/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly hazed golden orange color. A one finger white head forms and sticks around as a ring. Light lace.
S: Fairly neutral. Some wheat, slightly floral, light peppery spice.
T: Again a nice wheat and floral flavor. A bit more of the Hibiscus comes through which I like. Light spice.
M/D: A very light body. Medium carbonation, but almost watery thin. Not hard to drink if I wanted to.

Fairly inoffensive and nondescript. Though easy to drink on a hot day, which is probably the point. I just wish this had more character like 512 Wit or Karback Weiss Versa.
