A pleasant American wheat beer. Pretty straightforward, mild fruity hops over a crisp wheat dough malt character with a hint of toast. Simple but refreshing.

The appearance was a golden yellow color with a bar pour’s kind of cap of a head that slimmed out accordingly to a normal bar pour, rating adjusted accordingly. The smell had a sweet grassy to citrusy aroma running into a nice sweet grainy aroma. The taste was sweet and bitter through the hops and the wheat. There’s a nice sweet citrusy aftertaste leading into a nice finish. On the palate, this one sat pretty light on the body with a nice sesionable feel surrounding it. Carbonation feels right for the style and for me with a decent bitterness banging around. Overall, its nice for an American Pale Wheat ale. I’d have this again preferably in the Summer.

Sample glass at Growler Garage. The appearance was a golden yellow color with a bar pour’s kind of cap of a head that slimmed out accordingly to a normal bar pour, rating adjusted accordingly.

Pours a whitish golden blonde hue with a one-finger head into my glass.

Mellow notes of clove in the nose.

Surprisingly crisp with doughy wheat finish.

Goes down nice and clean.

If you're looking for something other than a pils, wit or hefe, this is beer that you want.

Had a glass of this at Skinny Pancake in Burlington.
Served in standard pint glass.
Color was very light honey with minimal head.
Smell was malty/bready not very strong.
Taste was good, malt forward, clean.
Mouthfeel was crisp and refreshing.
Overall for what it is, it was good. Low ABV beer with good, but not strong flavor.
