This was part of a Sam Adams four pack

Color- great brown hazy color with a 2 inch head

Smell- aroma of the beer is very strong when 1st poured

Taste- hoppy for a wheat beer, very sweet finish

Mouthfeel- the taste of the beer doesnt stay with you for that long

Very Drinkable, smooth taste, with more flavor than your average wheat beer

This brew was a yellowish amber, and had a good foamy head. It was clear, and obviously filtered.

The aroma was surprisingly hoppy for a wheat beer, especially for a dark one.

The taste was also a surprise, to the good. Rich wheat malt, strong and flavorful, with a full mouthfeel that washed over the tongue and said "This is real beer!"

A highly drinkable, very well done example of the style.
