Poured at the brewpub. It has a cloudy straw colored body with a think white head. The aroma is very wheaty with a fairly strong lemony character. The flavor is nice and light with a slight hop flavor. It is very light bodied and makes an excellent summer drinker.

Pour into a wiezen glass at 46 degrees.

Appearance: A one finger white creamy frothy head that has some retention. The body of the beer is a medium light gold color. There is some carbonation bubbles in the beer. The clarity of the is hazy, there is particals suspended in the beer.

Nose: A light wheat notes with fragrant flowers, citrus, and malt. In the background of the beer is a subtle sweetness.

Taste: A moderate amount of wheat flavor, fragrant floral esters, citrus, and malt. There is a touch of sweetness

Overall: The mouth feel of the beer is creamy, touch astringent, and slightly carbonated. The body of the beer is medium and the finish is medium. This one of my most hated styles of beer. I have not been able to find a good respresentive, until now. This is a nice pale wheat ale, it has great flavor, a good head and clean finish.
