Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

I enjoy blondes in the Spring (as well as brunettes, ravens, redheads)... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass-gold topped by a finger of relatively short-lived white foam. The nose comprises mild wheat, a kiss of grass, and a vague sense of citrus fruits. The taste brings in more of the same, with everything coming through a touch brighter and simultaneously a touch blander, as though everything were interpenetrating everything else to such a degree that the pieces are increasingly difficult to parse. The body is a hefty light, with a moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an okay brew, nothing I'll overtly insult, but nothing I'll drink again on purpose.

Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass.

A - Very clear gold, with a fizzy two-finger white head with next to zero retention. Mere specks for lacing. For a wheat beer, I did expect a thicker head.

S - Clean mild aroma of wheat and a little tangerine. Mild, but doesn't smell bad at all.

T - Taste matches the nose, with the wheat malt clearly leading the show here, lending a multi-grain bread flavor. Fruitiness becomes much more generic than in the nose, tasting reminiscent of orange scented wood polish. Hops don't really balance the wheat as well as they should, but they do add just a hint of spice. Hint of adjunct dextrins, but not overwhelmingly so. Overall flavor profile is clean and mild.

M - Things improve here, as the flavor profile would have you expect lots of water...instead you have a pretty full bodied beer for the style. Prickly carbonation. Finishes very "wet", with a mouth-coating finish.

O - I'm not exactly sure why the other reviews slam this beer THAT badly. It's a little bland and certainly nothing to write home about, but it's not really terrible either. Am I buying it again? No. But I wouldn't turn down a free one if someone offered.
