Pours on draft with nice frothy head, golden clear color. Nice spice wheat favor.

Although it looked and smelled pleasant enough, this one tasted like suntan lotion. Very, very unpleasant.

It's -5 degrees here in lovely detroit metro area michigan and I'm drinking this mostly average but extremely satisfying summer ale. Very hoppy and the wheat is definitely in the aroma. Solid brew all together.

From the bottle at a friend’s party. Couldn’t judge appearance. Minimal insight into aroma. Crisp taste with cereal/wheat malt, citrus rind, hop spice. Medium body, creamy texture, above average carbonation, clean finish.

A light pleasing wheat with a balanced malt taste and complex lemon, orange and other citrus notes.
