Pours a slightly yellow gold with a white head. Smells of wheat, citrus, and very mild hops. Tastes of wheat, grapefruit, honey, and mildly bitter hops. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall one of the better American wheat beers I've had which leaves me wondering about the lower reviews.

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is big wheat, dough, with grapefruit hops on the finish. Slightly bitter, with moderate carbonation and light body. Great for the style, above average as a beer. Makes for an interesting, clean and oh so drinkable ale. Glad I picked up a six.

12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at the store. Aroma is wheaty, chalky candy, wet hay, faintly lemony. Pours hazy golden with a thick white head with good retention and some lace. Taste has a high level of hoppy bitterness for the style; virtually no sweetness. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Much better than the majority of fake American Hefeweizens, like Widmer, with that hop character.

Poured a hazy, golden color with a large, fluffy white head of foam. It smelled of wheat, citrus and hay. Nice sweet flavor with lemon notes and cracked wheat.

Hazy pale gold with three fingers of five minute white head. Modest rings of lace.
Smell is spicy wheat.
Taste is spicy lightly bitter with good malt and wheat support. A bit of lemon zest flavor from the hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and slightly tart.
Overall a tasty warm weather beer.

Got this at Marcellars in Idaho Falls. Has a best by date of 8/30/2017.

Appearance: light golden hazy with a finger of off white head that diminishes quickly with little lacing.

Smell: Wheats and malt first. Then a bit of citrus and spices.

Taste: wheat comes through most. Then some malty bread flavor.

Feel: Good carbonation, almost seems a bit watery.

Overall: A pretty good wheat beer from an excellent brewery. I am a little dissapointed in this one though.

Pours a cloudy pale straw with a creamy white head with decent retention and some patchy lacing. Has a slight citrus aroma and a taste of light, sweet grain that has a hint of spice. Finishes clean and crisp. Refreshing beer for a hot summer day.
