Poured from bottle, enjoyed from glass.

A: A nice clear, pale, yellow color.

S: Light scent with the slightest hint of citrus.

T: Refreshing taste overall. A small draw of honey with a trace of lemon peel mix with a pleasant tasting wheat-beer taste.

M: The hops make the tongue water and wash to a dry mouth-feel. Very crisp hit on the initial sip.

Overall: This beer is a lovely summertime brew. I prefer this over Summer Shandy, Leinenkugel's "summertime" beer because this contains far less fruit and is not sweetened nearly as much. If the price is right and the weather is warm, try a few of these.

Appearance - Very clear, light yellow. Head is quick to dissipate.
Smell - Like a Miller light with a sweet note...not impressive
Taste - Drinkable, summer cutting grass type...that you want to guzzle down. No honey aftertaste and you cannot taste any wheat.
Mouthfeel - carbonated.
Overall - would not buy again.

Pours a clean pale yellow, with a white head. In the aroma, wheaty and sweet to dry honey. In the taste, lemon citrus, a wheat like bite, and rounded out with honey flavors of clove. A small bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry wheat and clove like aftertaste. Looks more like a pils, kind of thin and domestic like.
