Bottle brought home from Maryland by my girlfriend. Thanks Jola!

Pours a hazy golden yellow/orange, with a small half inch head that fades away quickly, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like wheat, and juicy citrusy hops- orange, pineapple, and a little bit of grapefruit.

Tastes similar. Some wheat and yeast bitterness, followed by juicy and fruity hop flavor- grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and finishes with some more yeast bitterness, along with some piney and grassy bitterness. This one's about 4 months old, so maybe the hops are faded, but they taste pretty good to me right now.

Light bodied, but full for a wheat. Crisp, biting mouthfeel, nice bitterness that lingers from many sides- hops, wheat, yeast, etc. Very drinkable, high carbonation.

This was pretty good, one of the better wheat beers I've had. Helps that it was hopped up, of course.

12 fluid ounce bottle.
“Best by” date of 07/10/2014

Hazy gold body with a reasonable amount of carbonation flowing throughout. A modest white head folded and left a traceable amount of foamy lacing.

Plenty of hops present in the nose. Fresh notes of citrus. Very subtle grainy notes from the malts.

Citrusy hops hit the tongue first: lemon peel and grapefruit to be exact. Sweet grainy notes balance out the hops: sweet rolls and general grains are the most prominent flavours the malts present.

Light-Medium body. Appropriate carbonation for the style.

Overall: A very complete wheat ale. Hop-forward with a satisfying grainy finish. Recommended.
