12 Oz bottle poured into a sam adams pint glass

A- Murky looking light yellow with a lot of little particles and different liquid densities in here/ A two finger big bubbled white head.

S- A lightly hopped wheatiness up front. A little fruiteness but its all about the wheat here. Fairly grainy but refreshing.

T- A nice fruity bitterness up front followed by a heap of wheat and grain. A refreshing bitterness with a light hop profile. A clean taste.

M- Very cleansing and refreshing. Light but not watered down. Goes down easy and keeps you interested.

O- This is a great summer brew, get it white its hot.
