The perfect warm weather wheat ale. Reminds me strongly of the summer beers I had in Germany. Not very much of a head on the pour, nor a strong hop flavor or aroma, but exceptionally smooth and satisfying. A personal favorite.

Significant wheal malt taste takes you to the grainy heartland. Gold and light color, and pretty decent body for a summer wheat ale. Solid, straight down the middle effort.

L: Golden/straw yellow with burnt orange highlights, hazy. Great head and retention. Only negative is some clear floating sediment.
S: Strong yeast, bread, grain, reminds me of a bakery. Slight fruity notes
T: Repeat of the nose with a nice dryness, straw-like finish
F: So drinkable. Body is smooth and creamy, silky, but balanced by the dryness. Full yet light. Great carbonation. Perfect summer quaffable brew
O: Excellent beer for a hot, lazy summer day. Cannot go wrong with this one
