Had this on tap at Orangeburg NY Holiday Inn ( Chris is bringing in some nice beers ). This beer has nice balance with both malt and hops coming through. Very drinkable , a really good summer beer. Herby, biscuity hops and good carbonation.
Wheats are not my first choice but I would definitely get this again.

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a one inch head. Good lacing down the glass.

Smells like wheat, cloves, and herbal hops.

Pretty similar tastes. A hoppier wheat than typical- the hops are of the herbal/grassy variety, with some wheat bitterness, cloves, and pear.

Light bodied and crisp mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Been waiting to try this one for a while, glad I was able to.
