12oz bottle, ceramic mug, bottled 5/22/13.

Have to admit I can't see the color through the glass, but it pours a light golden wheat with a nice creamy off-white head. The retention is decent.

Pungent dry grass/hay, a little funky yeast, and coriander. Crisp, yet a little dirty, funky, and interesting.

Same as the aromas, strong wheat with a little grassy, herbal hop.

It has a pretty full mouthfeel, rounded and definitely like a wheat beer. Nice medium carbonation level.

I have heard some rave about this in the past as a spring/summer beer and now I know why. This would be a great beer for some warm days; it's refreshing with some complexity and great representative of the American Pale Wheat Ale style.
