This brew pours a clear straw color with a small white head and light lacing. Low carbonation.

The smell blends together wheat, malt and hops very well. The wheat and the malt dominate, the hops are light but definitely present.

The taste follows the nose with wheat and bready malt on the front and then a light hop finish. The feel and finish are a little oily due to the hops; overall, this is a nice lightly hopped wheat beer.

Bought a 6 pack from Southtown Beverages late Sept 2015. Served cold in a Duvel tulip.

Look: hazy lemon yellow, thin white head

Smell: fruity, peaches in syrup

Taste: some eucalptus, light menthol.

Feel: slightly thin

Overall: it's ok
