4.26/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a bright golden wheat color that is semi cloudy with a large, yeasty head. SRM of 7 in sunlight. (4.00)

Aroma: Lots of lemon citrus. Also some grains, and bready honey malt. Very much like fresh-squeezed lemonade. (4.00)

Flavor: Tons of yeast upfront that is drying and astringent. As it fades it evolves into a wheat bread flavor that dominates. It's minerally and metallic at first. As the yeast turns into lemon it has a reminiscence of lemon dish soap. Not offputting though. Not getting any grass. The wheat bready malts provide a sweetness to balance the harsh yeast. (4.50)

Feel: Light to medium bodied. Sort of watery and flat. Under-carbonated. The yeast makes up for it though. Very yeasty mouthfeel, but the bread malt tame it a bit. (3.25)

Overall: A great beer and one of, if not, my favorite styles. Not an easy style to find. Props to Insight Brewing for creating this. It has a bit too much lemon and it's under-carbonated. Those are my two critiques. Otherwise it's a fantastic beer that I would pick over most any lagers in the summertime. Better than most wheat beers. Ultimately the Urban Chesnut Zwickel and the Mikkeler's Building Blocks are better than this one. Nonetheless, enough good cannot be said about this beer and the brewery that made it. Absolutely delicious. (Final Rating: 4.26)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

L: slightly hazy yellow gold permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" white foam cap with fair retention

S: has a cracker to white bread smell with medium low spicy noble hops, some earthiness and a mild yeast character

T: a mild malty sweetness with some apple flavors and a hint of (movie popcorn butter and a drying finish

F: body is medium to medium light and the carbonation is medium plus

O: his full flavored beer is refreshing and easy to drink.

Thirst quenching with balance to lightly sweet. I could drink 2. It would be solid with burgers and fries. Perfect for picnics. As a stand-alone I can see how some might prefer to seek something adventuresome but this is classic beer.

A fine beer, good carbonation with full-flavored/crackery taste. A must try (at least once), you won't be disappointed. Finally I have a beer that's named after me!! ;)

3.4/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Picked it up after a reccomendation from a friend.
Poured into a dortmunder dimple glass. Hazy yellow/straw color with very little head.
Taste is light and crisp of grain and a little bit of hoppiness.
Mouth feel is very light, not very much carbonation.
Smell is again of grain and a little hops.

Overall: A nice thirst quenching beer but nothing spectacular. I would probably compare it to a DAB (Dortmunder) or something similar. I could sit on the lake and have a couple, but it definitely wouldn’t be a go to for me.

3.16/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Look: pale yellow, semi-hazy, no head, no lacing. Aroma: hoppy, grass, botanicals and greens, some warm bready notes beneath. Taste: hoppy as well. More grassy, and green leaves. More bread than before too. Finish: the hops linger a bit while everything else vanishes quickly. Mouthfeel: thin and watery, high carbonation. Comments: the juxtaposition of the hop bite with the thinness of everything else in this beer really clashes. It's really light, but not easy to drink. It has no balance.
