This one took me by surprise. I just grabbed an 6 pack today and tried my first one. Impressive for such a seemingly simple profile. Smooth, malty, slight non citrus hops, attractive. Feel is maybe a little too bright for my liking, but okay for the taste. Just an ale that tastes like a beer, and comes across very fresh, which is the best part.

A pretty gold color in my pint glass. Small white head.
Grassy aroma. Herbal. Citrus.
Definitely a wheat beer. Grapefruit. Herbal.
A thirst-quenching beer with flavor.
Great!

From the 12 fl. oz. can with no canning or expiration date. Sampled on July 22, 2018.

The pour is light amber, not super hazy, but fairly heady.

Where is the wheat in this aroma? I wanted to get at least some but I could ascertain any., It smelled more like a bready, sweet pale ale. Maybe some grassy notes.

Light to medium body.

Same thing in the taste. I get a sweet breadiness but essentially no wheat. Maybe come citrus. Maybe some herbal. Mild bitter ness to finish. Eh, I won't have it again.
