Draught @ Brewpub: this one pours a cloudy golden color. A fair amount of a foamy white head that doesn’t linger long but does leave some lacing. The aroma id decent. Mainly some wheat and citrus notes. The taste is also pretty good. Wheat, citrus, and a slightly lighter body. A nice brew.

Had on tap at Portsmouth. Review from notes.

A: Served in a tall weizen glass, the beer was extremely hazy, light orange in color with yellow highlights. Small ring of foam on top minimal lacing.

S: A little bit of honey and wheat with some light citrus. There is a little bit of a yeast aroma as well.

T: Very wheaty with little else going on really. Some very light citrus hops and faint fruit flavors.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

O: It was just ok. Not bad, but a little boring especially after the other beers I had that day.
