This beer poured out as a light golden color with a foamy white head on top. The smell of the beer has a touch of lemon zest and malts in there. The taste had a hint of lemon as well and is fairly malty. The mouthfeel is pretty lighter and is decently refreshing. Overall this is a lot like the Sam Adams Summer Wheat but not as good.
