Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonic,

A: Hay coloration. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly. Continually rising effervescence is visible, and dry residue remains. Very sparse lacing.

S: Hay, hops, lemon citrus, and a bit of honey.

T: Wheaty and hoppy.... just like the label indicates. Accentuated with a nice dose of lemon zest.

M: Light and crisp. Does have a bit of metallic feel. Bitter aftertaste.

D: Drink session style.

Atmosphere is really nice. Great head, but sparse lacing. Nose is hay, with some crisp hop character, a little lemon citrus, and a bit of sweetness. Wheaty character, with a light yet crisp hop bite, balanced with lemon. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a cloudy straw amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thick film and hefty ring around the glass. Aroma of lemon citrus, light stone fruit and citrus hops. Flavor is lemon, biscuit wheat, light wheat, finishing with citrus rind and mild grassy hops. Light bodied with nice peppery carbonation. An interesting take on a wheat ale, with a distinct emphasis on the lemon citrus and a deft hand with hopping. The lemon is so dominant that this seems almost to veer off into fruit-malt-beverage territory, but the quality of the wheat body and citrus hops carry through for a pleasant wheat ale experience. Light and refreshing.
